A surprising parsnip

A surprising parsnip

There’s more to parsnips than you might imagine.  And you might be shocked, to learn that parsnips are from the same family as parsley. But unlike parsley it is the root of the plant not the leaves that we eat.

In season now until early spring but hold off as long as you can because they get sweeter after really cold weather.

Being a root vegetable they are starchy which makes them really satisfying and comforting at this time of the year.

I love them roasted, but they are also so delicious in soups, and one of my favourite soups is this delicious Spiced parsnip and coconut so simple to make and so yummy, so why not give it a go?
