Tips and advices

Serve with rice and caramelized root vegetables. Cut carrots and a few parsnips and yellow beets lengthwise into strips. Sauté the raw vegetables in butter and add a generous amount of honey or maple syrup. Then place vegetables on non-stick baking sheet or on parchment paper and bake in oven until tender.
