Don't be afraid of the prunes they add wonderful flavor to the parsnips and onions When you are adding the parsnips take time to arrange them in an attractive desgn - don't just dump them in. Make sure that you have a double layer of parsnips on the top as they shrink and tend to curl a bit
Looking through my veggie bin a saw a sweet potato & a couple of parsnips and I was reminded of two good recipes that I tried recently -Roasted Parsnips & Carrots by Mean Chef and Sweet Potato Rosti by KJ so I thought why not try Parsnips and sweet potato - This recipe is the result. I like to bake the veggies on a baking stone covered with parchment but a cookie sheet will do
A great replacement for potato patties, there is never any left. You can also double the recipe and make then like tater tots and serve as an appetizer. You can also kick them up just add a little cayenne or make a spicy yogurt sauce to go with them.
