Perfect Parsnip Recipes

Parsnips are root vegetables, similar to a carrot but golden yellow in color, with creamy-white flesh. They have a strong sweet flavor, and provide useful amounts of folic acid, B and C vitamins, plus plenty of dietary fiber. To prepare parsnips, top and tail, then scrub thoroughly or peel them.  You can then boil them until soft, and include them with other vegetables to create a delicious mash.  Another option is a tasty side dish of parsnips sliced like french fries, and roasted in the oven. They can also be a key ingredient in soups or casseroles. For lots of great vegetarian recipes, see The Veg-Feasting Cookbook
