Recipe by COOKGIRl
READY IN: 25mins




  • After peeling the parsnips, cut them into sticks the size of your pinkie finger.
  • Dry off any moisture with a paper towel or sacking cloth.
  • Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat then add the parsnips, tossing to coat.
  • Sprinkle the parsnips with the nutmeg.
  • Cover the skillet tightly with a lid and cook the parsnips over medium heat for approximately 10 minutes or until the parsnips reach a golden brown color. All stoves are different so if it looks like the parsnips may be cooking too quickly, lower the heat.
  • Add the water, place the lid back on the skillet and steam until the water has evaporated and the parsnips are golden, tender and caramelized.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Serve immediately.
