I waould rate this recipe higher than a 5 if I could. It is so easy and so tasty. I cut the center core out of the larger slices and pre cooked the parsnips for 5 minutes then put them in a baking dish with the orange juice, zest and only 1 tbsp of butter. Put them in theoven of 20 minutes just before dinner. Really enjoyed with garlic chicken

easy, quick and tasty. I added a carrot and it worked very well. I served it with pork chop and mashed potato - will make again. Thanks for posting

I took these to a dinner party and the recipe at one point was a topic of conversation. I loved the simplicity of the recipe. This was the first time to ever cook parsnips! Thank you Shirl for the lovely recipe — I am in a CSA and this week received parsnips and beets. YUM! Now I have to figure out what to do with KALE! cheers—
