Sometimes mistaken for a bulky white carrot, parsnips are often overlooked as far as root vegetables go.

With a subtle sweetness that pairs well with both sweet and savoury dishes alike, parsnip is a great addition to everyday meals and your diet.

Seasonally available in autumn and winter, choose firm, medium-sized parsnips for the best flavour, and store wrapped in the salad crisper for up to two weeks.
