The Story of Your Food: Parsnips

Posted 3/23/2018 6:41am by Dennis Skoworodko.

In defense of the lowly Parsnip.

This wonderful vegetable has been relegated to the sidelines and it seems that only your grandparents still eat parsnips. However, I say, we are missing out! This beautiful, earthly, aromatic veggie is a forgotten, underappreciated flavorful powerhouse. Oh sure, I could tell you about how healthy they are- Parsnips contain a wide variety of vitamins, minerals and nutrients, including dietary fiber, folate, potassium and vitamin C, blah, blah, blah. But it’s the flavor!! So rich and creamy! Especially when roasted until they are caramelized...a depth of taste that no other veggie really quite measures up to. So, I say, let’s give parsnips the respect I think they deserve, and put them back in our cooking, and enjoy this treat.
