Parsnips taste like a cross between a carrot and a potato and are very high in fibre. They have never been my favourite vegetable though I’ve always eaten them because I knew that they were good for me. I am a huge fan of french fries and I came with this alternative to my greasy friends. This recipe for curried parsnips is a great substitute for fries and they make an excellent appetizer or snack.
Cooking time 30 minutes
5 cups (1.25 L) Parsnips
water for boiling
2 tbsp (30 ml) olive oil
1/2 tsp (2 ml) masala
1/2 tsp (2 ml) turmeric
1 tsp (5 ml) sea salt
1. Cut the parsnips in half lengthwise. Lengthwise cut each half into 2-3 pieces based on size.
2. Bring water in a pot to a boil and add the parsnips and boil until soft about 5 minutes.
3. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to a medium-sized non-stick saucepan on medium-heat and add half the parsnips in a single layer.
4. Cook each side of the parsnips until golden and then turn over. When all the sides are golden, add the masala, turmeric and salt. Gently toss the parsnips in the pan and cook another minute.
