Caramelized Winter Roots

This recipe is perfect in a cast iron fry pan!  If you don't have one, use your heaviest bottomed pan and watch carefully.  You might need to stir/add more oil more frequently to prevent sticking.  Either way, this is quite delish!

4+ tablespoons olive oil
¾ pound turnips, unpeeled, cut into ½ inch dice
¾ pound potatoes, unpeeled, cut into ½ inch dice
¾ pound carrots, peeled, cut into ½ inch dice
Salt and pepper to taste
Thyme to taste (approx 1 tsp dried)
½ pound onion, chopped

In heavy bottomed skilled, heat olive oil on medium.  Add all ingredients except onions and sauté at a gentle sizzle, stirring for about 15-20 minutes.  Try not to brown too quickly, reduce heat if necessary, &/or add more oil.  Add onions and continue to cook as above until veggies are tender and deep brown.
