I have included suggestions for alternative cooking methods and times in the notes section of the recipe card below.
This dish is a result of me trying to stop overlooking parsnips when I’m in the produce section.
Parsnips are a no-FODMAP food, which makes them an ideal food choice if you or someone you know has digestive sensitivities.
Parsnips are also pretty high in fiber as well as vitamins and minerals like potassium and manganese.
How to select parsnips?
Make sure you select parsnips that are smooth, and hard, They should be free of any soft spots and discolorations. And, it would be best if they weren’t sprouting anything funky either.
Just make sure to scrub them under running water before using them or peel the outer skin off of them ~ like I did for this recipe.
How to eat parsnips?
Parsnips can be eaten raw or baked, fried, steamed, and sautéed stove top – like these Golden parsnips were.
Parsnips can be used as a thickener in soups and stews – or simply the star of soups and stews. Then can also be cooked, mashed and served like mashed potatoes.

By the way, veering off subject slightly, my mom just texted me to let me know that turmeric is in short supply in Sri Lanka and it is a hot item for smugglers!
Of course I had to find out more and sure enough, people are being arrested for smuggling turmeric into Sri Lanka! What? Of all the things???
According to this article, the Sri Lankan Government had banned any imports of turmeric to get a handle on the spread of the coronavirus. Cultivation of turmeric has increased immensely due to the ban, with large amounts of turmeric forecasted to be available in early 2021. But, what’s one to do until then?
