A neighbor gave me two lovely parsnips that have been wintered over... They were soooo sweet that when I used them in this recipe they nicely balanced the hot pepper in this lovely veggie sidedish. Thanks so much for posting. =) This is a keeper!! (I'm e-mailing it to several friends. )

Totally yummy and so easy to make! I made these for my 85 year old mother who has always loved parsnips and she thought they were absolutely wonderful - so I'll certainly be making these again, Bergy! I omitted the optional jalapeno pepper because we have a VERY low tolerance of anything hot but, apart from adding a few additional herbs - rosemary, thyme and sage on this occasion - I didn't change a thing. Fantastic recipe: thank you so much for sharing it! Made for All New Zaar Cookbooks Tag.

Bergy, confession time! I have never had a parsnip in my whole life, nor did I really WANT to have one LOL! But my DH really wanted to try this recipe, as he enjoys parsnips, so I gave it a go. Am I ever glad I did!! These were delicious! Crunchy on the outside and smooth inside, as promised. I am low carbing, so I made these in place of potatoes, and they really hit the spot. They reminded me of potatoe pancakes. Thanks for a great recipe and a new love of parsnips! Made for PAC Spring 2007.
