Sauteed Parsnips

Sauteed Parsnips created by Spoonless Kitchen

It's hard to resist seconds when I make up a batch of these delicious veggies. The trick is to slice them very very thin...like potato chips. I find it is best to use a mandoline to make the job quick and easy. I'm not a big carrot fan, and I find that slicing thicker pieces makes the parsnips taste a bit "carroty." This is not a low-cal recipe, but it is loaded with vitamins and has a flavor that will make you crave parsnips from now on!

ingredients

directions

  • Slice parsnips as thin as possible. Use a mandoline if you have one, on the thinnest setting.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add parsnips, garlic, spices, and salt. Saute on medium to low heat until parsnips become tender and transparent. The parsnips have a tendency to absorb the oil, so be prepared to add a little more if the parsnips begin to stick to the bottom. Do not cook too fast. You want them to get thoroughly cooked without getting burned.
  • When the parsnips begin to look done, add the butter and sugar. Continue to saute until slightly browned.

    It was very good. It needs to set for a few hours to really taste the spices. I doubled the amount of parsnips. The four servings for the original amount of parsnips was not realistic except perhaps in time of famine.

    I think I screwed up. I pulled them when they were slightly brown. I think I should have waited for a darker color. They were slightly raw..but, a wonderful flavor. I'll make again, and be less anxious to pull from the burner.

    OK taste. Too bad they needed the organic cane sugar I used. I used organic local parsnips, avocado oil in a lesser amount adding a little water as another reviewer as needed, organic ginger powder, the sage but not nutmeg because it is an intoxicant which we don't consume for religious reasons so I subbed allspice in its place, no butter as we are dairy free but I do know it would make the flavour better.
