I was at the grocery store the other day and saw the most unique veggie ever. It was cone-shaped like a carrot, but really pale and smelled a lot different. I asked the cashier and he said it was a parsnip. A parsnip? Maybe I'm just sheltered, but I'd never heard of a parsnip before. When I got home I did some research to make the perfect parsnip snack. After trying many things and only liking a few, I asked my librarian for a recipe. It is probably the best snack you'll ever have... and it's healthy, too. Here is a librarian's old family recipe for parsnip, with my personal spin to it!
****Should take roughly 10-15 minutes!****
Wash and peel your parsnip. Now slice it into thin slices.
Set your stove-top burner to high and begin melting 2 tbs of butter with a dash of corn oil. Wait for the butter to be completely melted.
Pour in the slices and saute them for about 10 minutes, or until yellowed and golden-brown along some edges. They should be soft to eat, but not mushy.
After practicalyl no time, you have a delicious vegetable snack! Bon Appetit! *I don't reccomend boiling parnsip. It turns out mushy and with a washed-out flavor.*
