Orange carrot slivers and yellow parsnips make a pretty and different side dish. If parsnips aren't available, you could substitute rutabagas or turnips. Usually, I saute the vegetables until they are crisp-tender. But they're also good quite well-cooked, almost browned. —Lavonne Hartel Williston, North Dakota


  • 1-1/2 pounds parsnips, peeled and julienned
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 pounds carrots, julienned
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion


  1. In a large skillet, saute parsnips in butter for 3-4 minutes. Add carrots and onion; cook and stir until vegetables are tender, about 10-15 minutes.
