Parsnips, what are those Erin?
They’re like carrots. Similar consistency, similar flavor and they cook up just the same. They’re just a different color.
If you’ve never tried them, this is a great recipe to start with…because I’m tossed them together with some carrots in a similar and delicious roasted and glazed recipe.
It goes like this: roast the carrots and peeled parsnips on a foil lined baking sheet. Turn them once or twice while they are roasting. Mix together the glaze and once they finish roasting, drizzle the glaze over the top. And serve warm.
Here is another great roasted winter veggies recipe that uses parsnips for you to try.
However you wish to make them, I sure hope you enjoy them!!
