I never ate parsnips before, but my CSA handed me 4 lbs this week. Made this recipe for dinner tonight with pork chops and Waldorf Salad. I i did use only half the butter, and that worked just fine. This recipe meets all my criteria....easy, healthy and delicious--and no question I will be making it again.

I think this recipe could be used on a lot of different veggie combos and it would turn out great. The honey, butter and balsamic vinegar combination is what m<br/>akes this such a stand out!!! Thank you Kitten!!!!
