I like them roasted too. Although too high in carbs for me right now. I like them in the Crockpot with a roast.

parsnips are also wonderful mashed like potatoes, and I once had a marvelous leek and parsnip creamed soup.

Uh oh!! How high in carbs are they? I just made them tonight for dinner for the first time (boiled them, then mashed like potatoes with butter) - they were SOOOOOOOOO good!!! I'd like to try them roasted next....... but it depends on carb count.

They're pretty high, 23.93g carbs per cup of slices, with 6.5g fiber.
You are at goal though, are you not?
You can probably handle this once in a while...

Thanks for the carb count! I didn't realize they were so high. I could have eaten the whole pot of them they were so good. I guess I'll be cooking these only once per month.

The first time I had these was in the Fall. I made a stew with a package of stew veggies and a parsnip was in there. It tastes just like a carrot to me, so if was kind of a warning that it would be high in carbs. Tasted good, though!!

Mmmm, brings back memories - my mom used to cube up parsnips, rutabagas and a carrot, boil til tender, then mash with butter and sesame seeds! Soo soo good!

Not low carb but full of good nutrients - should be ok every now and then on Maintenance!
