I spend a lot of time in my kitchen.

Like, a lot.

The kitchen is my office.

As a recipe developer I create dirty dishes for a living.

My evenings are glamorously spent standing over a sink full of pots and pans.

Playlist circling in the background.

And soap.

Lots and lots of soap.

And that’s potentially a lot of harmful chemical exposure. And I’m not into all that, so I’ve partnered with method to #fearnomess because they are a company I can trust. I can feel good about getting my hands dirty, and then clean. Because they follow a pretty simple rule: if there’s a chance an ingredient isn’t safe, they don’t use it. Period.

Also. It doesn’t dry my seriously sensitive skin out. Which is a hard task to tackle. method dish soap comes in a lot of fun scents. My favorites right now are the pear ginger and honeycrisp apple {featured here}. Fall vibez, without it being over the top autumnal. I dig it.

This autumn vegetable skillet is quick and easy to throw together. It highlights the more underused fall vegetables like, parsnips and radishes and turnips. And sunchokes! The sunchokes and the sage make the dish. The other vegetables are flexible, and the ratios of each are up to you. But, the sunchokes and sage are non-negotiables here.

You could eat this on its own, like I did. Or you could add greens, like arugula and make it a roasted vegetable salad. You could top polenta or risotto or pasta with it. And you could add in an egg or beans or lentils for some extra protein. Enjoy, and happy mid-October! How is it already mid-October?

Autumn Vegetable Skillet with Sunchokes + Sage

Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 20 mins
Serves 2 - 4 servings     adjust servings

This recipe uses 3 cups of root vegetables. I used a combination of carrots, parsnips, radishes and turnips. You can use all of one kind, or a combination of a couple, etc. It's up to you, and really flexible. The sunchokes shouldn't be missed though. It gives it great, unexpected flavor. Hot tip! You do not need to peel sunchokes, just scrub and go.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups root vegetables {see notes}
  • 1 cup sunchokes, diced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced small
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 stalks celery, diced small
  • 2 tablespoons fresh sage leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • sea salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat a pan of boiling water. Toss in the root vegetables and sunchokes and blanch for 2 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a skillet or sauté pan, heat the olive oil over low heat. Sweat the onions for 3 minutes, and then add in the garlic and celery. Season with salt and pepper, stir and continue sautéing for a about 3 minutes.
  3. Then add in the sage and blanched vegetables. Stir, season with more salt and pepper and cook for about 5 minutes or until the vegetables have reached your desired doneness. Remove from the heat and stir in the fresh parsley.
  4. Serve hot or cold.

    Method is the only soap we use in our kitchen (er, galley?) It’s the best. And I’m all kinds of into this vegetable skillet w/ sunchokes, love the idea of putting an egg on it!

    PS: I miss you, can we have happy hours together all the time, but maybe not in Vegas next time? ;)

    Sherrie, your kitchen is so dang cute! I love that little windowsill and the retro floor. I hear you on days making messes and nights spent cleaning them up (thanks goodness we have such stellar guys to help us with the latter). And this dish is singing to me, cause – one pan, one dish, I’m in! This soap sounds heavenly too, those scents – the best. I hope you are enjoying another fall in your new (do you still call it new?) city of St. Louis <3 happy week to you friend. xx

    I have to admit, I was lured here by the prospect of seeing your kitchen! So cute! I love the whole sink area and that eclectic retro floor! As I sit here looking at the pile of dishes and the empty bottle of soap on the counter, I really wish I had some method to help me out! Loving the autumn vibes of this dish. I’m totally going to try it asap….as soon as I tackle these dishes :)
