I didnt really find these 'sweet and gooey' but they were really good. I have never cooked parsnips before and I do not know that i have ever really eaten them. I enjoyed them a lot and will make them again! Thanks for teaching me about a new veggie that we can enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Scrape or peel the parsnips, then cut them into sticks about the size of your little finger. Dry them well with a paper towel.
  2. In a heavy 10-inch skillet, melt the butter; add the parsnips shaking to coat. Sprinkle with nutmeg, cover tightly, and sauté on medium heat for about 5 to 10 minutes. The parsnips should be tender and gooey and slightly caramelized. Add salt and pepper to taste.
