Using a vegetable peeler, peel the first layer of skin off of the carrot and parsnip.  Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly brush the carrot, parsnip with vegetable oil, season with kosher salt and pepper and cook at 350 for 20 minutes.  Remove the pan from the oven and allow the vegetables to cool.  Cut to medium size pieces and store in refrigerator until time to prepare entire dish.  

In a pot of 6 cups of water, add 1tsp. of kosher salt.  Add the turnips and radishes to the pot and blanch them for 6-8minutes.  Remove the vegetables from the pot and cool until the time to serve.  

Place a medium size sauté pan on medium heat.  Add 1tsp of vegetable oil to the pan.  Once the oil is hot place the vegetables in the pan.  (Note the oil should be hot but not smoking.)  While the vegetables are cooking, season them with salt and pepper.  Continue to cook the vegetables on all side until they are brown, but not burnt.  Add the sage leaves to the pot and turn off the heat.  Place the vegetables on a paper towel lined plate to remove any excess oil.
