Randy Mayor; Lydia DeGaris-Pursell

We used baby carrots with tops attached, but bagged baby carrots work fine.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 3 ounces pork, about 2/3 cup vegetables, and 2 tablespoons sauce)

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Trim stalks from fennel; discard. Cut each fennel bulb into 8 wedges. Peel onions, leaving root intact; cut each onion into 8 wedges.
  3. Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add fennel and onion; sauté 8 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring frequently. Remove from pan. Add remaining oil, rutabaga, and carrots to pan; sauté 5 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring frequently.
