Those that know me, or have seen my food posts, know that I make almost all my meals. I eat mainly whole foods and rarely used processed items to add to the meals I prepare.
Yesterday morning, I prepared this meal. It’s a simple sauteed dish to which I added a few herbs and spices that I’d ground in my mortar and pestle. I didn’t add too much, because I wanted the flavors of the vegetables used to shine, and they did. I sauteed the vegetables for about four minutes, which wasn’t long and left a lot of the crunch one receives from eating fresh vegetables.
All the vegetables, with the exception of the parsnips, are something we eat constantly. Last week, I purchased parsnips at our local farm. The parsnips I recently purchased, have been mainly been using them them in my vegetable juices, but yesterday they played a starring role in this dish. I will most likely use them again this weekend, when I make a oven roasted root vegetable dish.
