Learn to Love Parsnips

Parsnips are more than just craggy looking albino carrots. They are tasty tubers that are worth learning to love, and I don't think you will have to work hard to love them. Nutritionally speaking, parnips are like a cross between carrots and potatoes. They have a lot less vitamin A than carrots, but more vitamin C and a bit more fiber. Parsnips are high in folic acid, which is important if you are planning on getting pregnant in the near future.

Tastewise, the parsnip is also a blend of carrots and potatoes. They are sweeter than carrots and bit starchier, too. I don't think I am the only one who would say that they taste like Fall. They are in the height of their season right now, making them a perfect addition to your Thanksgiving meal. Parsnips are great roasted in a medley of Winter veggies and make a nice addition to mashed potatoes.

You can also turn them into tasty curry oven fries, and see how, just

Parsnip Fries With Curry Dipping Sauce


  1. 2 pounds medium parsnips
  2. 2 tablespoons canola oil
  3. 1 teaspoon each ground cumin and coriander
  4. 1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  5. 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon curry paste
  6. juice of half a lime
  7. 1 small green onion, minced
  8. Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 450°. Peel parsnips. Cut by trimming tops and bottoms; slice in half crosswise to separate thick and narrow parts. Halve or quarter thick parts lengthwise, until all parsnip pieces are roughly the same size (this ensures even cooking).
  2. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss parsnips with 2 tablespoons canola oil and spices. Spread in a single layer.
  3. Roast until tender and golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes, flipping parsnips halfway through baking time.
  4. While parsnips roast, mix yogurt, curry powder, lime juice, and green onion in a bowl to use a dipping sauce. Salt and pepper to taste.

Serves 2 to 3
