In many ways the parsnip is the quintessential root vegetable: complex and earthy with a taste that’s difficult to explain. When cooked they often release a little bit of sweetness making them good for stews and roasting. With fiber to curb appetite and regulate digestion, plus high doses of several vitamins and minerals in a relatively small portion, parsnips are an under appreciated superfood.
