    2 medium sized parsnips (approx. 9"), 1/2 tbsp. butter, salt & pepper to taste.


Peel the parsnips and cut off and discard the ends. Slice into 1" rings and place in a microwave safe dish with 1/4 cup of water. Microwave 5-7 minutes on high or until tender when pierced with a knife tip. Do not overcook or they will get soggy.

Melt 1/2 tbsp. butter in a nonstick pan. Drain parsnips and saute in the butter on medium/high heat for a few minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Season with a little salt and pepper.

    I skipped the microwave part and just let them cook in the skillet until a crunchy brown on the outside. Yum - 10/25/09

    didn't do the par boil but sauted in Olive Oil, even my daughter thought they were great (I didn't tell her they were good for her) - 2/24/10

    I love these. I grate them and sauté, then add a touch of Splenda brown sugar blend. - 11/28/12
