What Are Parsnips?

If you have never cooked with parsnips before, you likely aren’t alone. Parsnips are root vegetables that resemble pale-colored carrots. They taste very similar to carrots in the sense that they are earthy and have a bit of a natural sweetness to them, while parsnips also have a bit of a kick. I wouldn’t classify them as spicy by any means… you’ll just have to try them to see for yourself! 😉

If you end up making this dish and this is the first time you are trying parsnips, be sure to let me know what you think of them! I’m excited to know!
