Honey Glazed Root Veg with Walnuts

Cooking seasonally is always preferred and this Fall/Winter side dish is a real winner. I got the walnuts and turnips at my local farmer’s market and they inspired me to pay homage to root veggies by creating this side dish that would be a welcome addition to any thanksgiving or harvest table. The beets stain the turnips and parsnips to a wonderful magenta when cooked together but if you want the separate colors, cook the beets by themselves if you feeling Martha Stewarty. this recipe is heart healthy, diabetic friendly, gluten-free vegan and Paleo.PRINT Honey Glazed Root Veg with Walnuts Recipe from MS Word
