Our home economists came up with this recipe to showcase late summer and early fall produce. The slightly sweet glaze coats every delicious piece.


  • 2 medium parsnips, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 3 medium carrots, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1 small onion, halved and sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium zucchini, halved and cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, thinly sliced and halved
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon dill weed


  1. Place parsnips in a large saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Add the carrots. Cook 7-9 minutes longer or until vegetables are crisp-tender; drain and keep warm.
  2. In a large skillet, saute onion and garlic in oil for 1 minute. Add the zucchini and red pepper; cook and stir for 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Remove from the skillet and keep warm.
  3. In the same skillet, melt butter; stir in the brown sugar and cornstarch until smooth. Gradually stir in the water, seasoned salt, lemon-pepper and dill. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Add the vegetables; stir to coat.
