Ingredients

  • 1 large rutabaga, about 1 1/2 pounds
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Flaky salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley

Directions
Heat the oven to 450°F. Peel the rutabaga with a vegetable peeler and cut into 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch cubes.

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat and cook for about 5 minutes, until the butter foams then browns into a nutty, toasty-smelling liquid.

Toss the rutabaga with the browned butter and season with salt and pepper. Transfer the rutabaga to a large baking sheet and spread into a single layer. Roast for 25 to 40 minutes or until browned and tender. Remove from the baking sheet and toss with lemon juice and parsley.

Enjoy!

Shopping at Media Farmers Market Can Make Your Brain Healthy!

According to a CBS news report, citing a recent article in Popular Science, it may not be doing crossword puzzles that keep our brains sharp after all, but exercise, sleep, eating your greens and socializing with others. So walk to the the Market (or drive to it, and then enjoy walking while you shop), buy fresh fall greens to prepare at home later, and socialize with your local vendors and neighbors while you shop. All of that’s bound to help you sleep better, too! So come on out to tomorrow’s Market for better brain health. Only two Markets left ’til Thanksgiving!
