How to Prepare Parsnips
Scrub well and peel with a vegetable peeler. If you happen to have large parsnips, cut out the woody stems and discard. Also, trim and discard both ends. When preparing, you can either leave them whole, dice, slice, or grate depending on what you’d like to do with it!
Whether you are boiling, broiling, steaming, pureeing, or roasting parsnips, keep in mind that you can use them just as you would use a carrot.
