Pick of the Week Recipe: Thanksgiving Sides!
By Sandy Lawler, Manager of the Baltimore Farmers' Market & Bazaar
Roasted Root Veggies
Serves 4

Directions:
  1. Heat oven to 425. Scrub and/or peel a variety of root vegetables like carrots, parsnips, turnips, and rutabagas.
  2. Cut to make them uniform in size. Place dry veggies on a baking sheet and toss with a couple of sprigs of fresh herbs like thyme, rosemary, or oregano, fresh ground pepper, and about 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  3. Roast for 15-30 minutes, rolling the veggies over half way, until fork tender. Can be made a day ahead and served at room temperature.

Brussels Sprouts
Serves 4

Ingredients
  • 2 cups brussels sprouts rinsed, drained and thinly sliced (a food processor works nicely)
  • 2-3 shallots thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup currants or raisins
  • olive oil, salt, pepper

Directions:
  1. Place a large sauté pan over medium high heat and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil followed by the brussels sprouts.
  2. Tossing them regularly, allow them to start to wilt and then add the shallots. You should begin to get some crisp edges at which point add the currants.
  3. Keep the veggies moving in the pan and you’ll see the currants start to soften... do not allow to burn and if it’s too dry, add a splash of water.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste… can be made ahead and reheated!
