Parsnips

I just joined a couple days ago and I can't wait to read more. I absolutely enjoy being in my kitchen and cooking/baking.

I bought some parsnips and now want to know the different ways I can fix them. Any thoughts? They sure do smell good.

I LOVE parsnips! They are the magic ingredient in my family's chicken soup recipe. I also use them in pot roast, or just as a vegetable... microwaved, steamed, or boiled till soft. If you boil them, save the water to add to chicken stock or to boil rice in. You can also roast them. Mash 'em with butter. Add them to anything you add cooked veggies too. Yum.

Steamed diced parsnips in a cream (butter, flour and steaming water) sauce?

While I like parsnips as a vegetable on their own, I don't use them much in soups &/or stews because of their sweetness. If I do use them, I definitely cut back on the amount of carrots I'm using because the two of them together just seem to make things too candy-sweet for me.

I peel them and then grate them....then I saute them in melted butter with diced onion, shallots, s&p and nutmeg. When grated, they cook in about 5 minutes.

I was about to post that I thought it was pretty cool that another family loves parsnips in their chicken soup until I realized we are in the same family . Good thing I looked at who posted before I put my post through.

I love them roasted too. Cut up a bunch of different root veggies and potatoes and toss with some oil salt and pepper. Roast and enjoy.

Roasted Parsnips Tonight

I ended up roasting the parsnips with carrots and broccoli. My oldest daughter (15) wanted broccoli.

I cooked up some orzo and roasted those chicken legs with a sweet and sour sauce. It was definitely tasty. Thanks.

I'm near Lancaster, Ohio. So I'm in rural South Central Ohio.
