Now that the weather is colder and we are fully in the winter, it is important to stay warm during the cold winter days. One of the best ways to do this is with a nice, hot meal. Always the same soup is delicious, of course, but sometimes it is also nice to just eat something different. For example, think of parsnips; a root vegetable that can help you stay warm this winter and is very healthy indeed! They contain many natural antioxidants, dietary fibers and Vitamine C. Below are the best parsnip recipes to keep you warm this winter:
This delicious meal is easy to make in large batches and tastes great with some freshly baked bread. The hardest part of making parsnip soup is preparing the vegetables. Peeling and chopping parsnips can be tricky, so it’s best to use a food processor for this step. It is also useful to order the prepared parsnips from Prepared Vegetables. This saves you a lot of effort! Once the parsnips are cut, all you need to do is cook them in some water. You will need about 4 or 5 parsnips per person. Then add some salt, pepper and some of your favorite herbs and let it cook until the parsnips are soft enough. For an even richer taste, add a splash of sour cream to every bowl of soup!
Savory parsnip pie
This is an ideal meal to eat with the whole family. It is an all-in-one meal that can be served as a main course or as a side dish. All you need are a few parsnips, some puff pastry and a little bit of shortening. If you like, you can also add some other vegetables such as carrots or celery to add some extra flavor. Parsnip pie is delicious in combination with, for example, some boiled tomatoes or cabbage! Chop the parsnips finely and boil them in some water until they are soft. Then drain the water and add the vegetables to the puff pastry in your greased baking pan. Add some salt and pepper and add some of your favorite spices. Then close the cake well with the puff pastry and bake the cake for about 45 minutes at 250 degrees in the oven. Lets eat!
Sweet parsnip wedges
This is a great side dish for lunch or dinner. To make this, peel the parsnips into small pieces, about the size of your thumb. Then boil them in water until they are soft. Add a little bit of salt, pepper and then maple syrup to sweeten it up a bit. Keep an eye on; Parsnips are naturally sweet, so they don’t need a lot of syrup to make them delicious! Let the parsnips cool down and then enjoy your delicious snack. Stew pears are nothing in comparison to this vegetable!
