Everyone knows and loves the crunchy sweetness of a fresh carrot — but what about their equally delicious cousin, the parsnip? Parsnips look and taste very similar to a carrot, but with a light beige color and a bit of extra sweetness. They’re also bursting with important nutrients, including vitamin C, fiber, and potassium. Like carrots, parsnips are extremely versatile and make a delicious side dish no matter how you choose to cook them, whether raw, roasted, sauteed, pureed, or anything else you can think of. For your next order, try picking up a few parsnips and giving them some much-deserved spotlight in place of their more-popular cousin.
