Parsnips - vegetable of the month

Vegetable of the Month – Parsnip

Here at Goodlife we love our parsnips. We love them honey roasted, mashed with carrots and swede, chopped up and cooked in a yummy veggie casserole; and best of all – in our Picador Parsnip and Sweet Carrot Nut Burger with Crunchy Cashews! We love how their soft, fragrant, and sweet flesh adds a warm and comforting element to dishes.

Parsnips are mainly grown in colder parts of Europe and here in the UK – our cool climate makes it the ideal place to grow the perfect parsnip. Parsnips are closely related to the carrot, yet have a much sweeter flavour, much like a sweet potato. Parsnips are at their best in the autumn and early winter, as the first frost of the year is the thing that turns the starch in the parsnips into sugar, giving them their distinctive taste!
