    Roasting them with veg in frylite, synned honey? Is lovely.
    You can mash them.
    Make soup.
    Add to stews.
    I love parsnips.

    Parsnip and ginger soup is LUSH!
    2 carrots
    2 celery sticks
    1 onion
    1-2 cloves garlic
    thumb sized piece of ginger
    700g parsnip
    2x chicken stock cubes
    1/2-1 litre boiling water.
    Chuck everything in a pan and boil for 30mins, blend and serve.

    I added some squash to mine tonight. Lovely warming winter soup :)

    Easiest thing is just to do a search using the search term "parsnip" - it will pull up all the recipes in this section that include parsnips

    Also check out www.bbcgoodfood.com as many recipes can easily be made SW friendly

    Parsnips are awesome in soup, roasted or in a curry. Fennel seeds have an affinity with parsnips. Hope you find some lovely stuff to make. :)
