  1. Place the parsnips into a saucepan, and cover with water. Bring to a boil, turn down the heat, and simmer until parsnips are tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain well, pat the parsnip pieces dry with paper towels, and set aside.
  2. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat, and place the parsnips into the hot butter in an even layer. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper (I use quite a bit). Cook parsnips until lightly golden brown on both sides, 5 to 8 minutes per side.

Easy, tasty, and almost as versatile as french fries. Used fresh, coarsely ground garlic pepper seasoning which gave this dish more in-depth flavor. If having one, use a deep skillet to avoid cl...

Quick, easy and great! I found this recipe while searching the site for a recipe using parsnips and turnips. I followed a tip from a reviewer and microwaved my chopped & peeled parsnips and tu...

DELICIOUS!!!!!Made this just like the recipe the first night but only used 1/2 of the parsnips as that is a lot for one person. The next day I put the leftover cooked parsnips in the chopper an...

Tried and true! I made these almost a year ago for one of my favorite 5 year old kiddos since we had gotten on the topic of root vegetables. He LOVED them as did I! They reminded me of my mom's,...
