Delicious Pan-seared Parsnips

This recipe was passed onto to me by my uncle.  It is both simple and satisfying. And, it gave me a new appreciation for how good parsnips really are.  They get so sweet, you will think they are candy.

  • 2-6 Parsnips: chopped into 1/4 to 1/2 inch slices (if parsnips is large you may want to split in in half length wise and then slice it).
  • Garlic: 2-4 chopped cloves
  • Oil (olive oil works well): enough to coat the pan

Heat the oil to med high.  Add the sliced parsnips cover and cook until soft and caramelized (watch your heat and turn it down if you need to). Stir as needed.  Let them get really nice and soft. Right before you take the parsnips off the heat add your chopped garlic and stir for about 1 minute.  Salt to taste and serve.
