Between the sweet corn of summer and the October’s pumpkins, it’s easy to forget that September has some great produce too. Particularly, many root vegetables are in season this month.
To serve a family of four, cut about one pound of red radishes in half. Place an oven-proof skillet into the oven and preheat to 450 degrees. Combine the radishes with about one and a half pounds combined of turnips, carrots, and parsnips, cut into uniform pieces. Toss the veggies with olive oil, salt, and black pepper. Finally, pour the veggies in the skillet and cook for 15 minutes. Turn the veggies and cook for another 15 minutes.
As always, shop local at the Red Wing Farmer’s Market, which keeps summer hours through October. Studies show that produce tends to have more nutrients when purchased locally.
