Sauteed Parsnips and Carrots with Honey and Rosemary

By December 12, 2010Uncategorized


2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 pound carrots (about 4 large), peeled, cut into 3×1/4×1/4-inch sticks

1 pound large parsnips, peeled, halved lengthwise, cored, cut into 3×1/4×1/4-inch sticks

Coarse kosher salt

2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter

1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary

1 1/2 tablespoons honey (such as heather, chestnut, or wildflower)


Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add carrots and parsnips. Sprinkle with coarse kosher salt and pepper. Sauté until vegetables are beginning to brown at edges, about 12 minutes. Add butter, rosemary, and honey to vegetables. Toss over medium heat until heated through and vegetables are glazed, about 5 minutes. Season to taste with more salt and pepper, if desired.

Note: Carrots can take a bit longer to cook than parsnips, so if the carrots are large and mature, sauté them for a minute or two to soften slightly before adding the parsnips.
