I used my parsnips 2 delicious ways this week. I apologize as I cook without measuring & go by taste & looks. FYI I use a cast iron frying pan, which in my opinion makes every recipe better.

Parsnip & Bean Curry

heat Olive Oil - a good glug on med/high stove
when oil is hot add several Parsnips (mine were cut up quite small to please certain people I live with) along with several portobella mushrooms (sliced)
and a bit of crushed garlic, salt, pepper and some red pepper flakes to taste
this should be stirred to ensure even browning of the veggies, for around 5 minutes or until the veg are close to cooked
then add 1 cup pre-cooked Aduki Beans and a heaping spoon of curry powder
stir to blend flavours, then once the curry starts to smell really warm add about a cup of water or broth, lower heat and simmer for at least 15 minutes,
the longer you simmer the better the flavour,
continue to add small amounts of water as the beans tend to absorb a fair bit.

Parsnip Kale Galette

Stir Fry in olive oil several parsnips cut up fine with about 1 cup of kale cut in strips, a few mushrooms & crushed garlic for about 5 minutes - remove from pan & set aside to cool slightly
toast gently over med heat half a cup of walnuts with a handful of fresh sage leaves
meanwhile - beat 2-3 eggs with 1 Tbsp flour, some salt & a handful of grated cheese
add some more oil or better - butter, to your pan
mix nuts with veggies then quickly add egg mix and put the whole mess back in the frying pan over med. heat but don't stir
cook for 3/4 minutes then flip the entire contents of the pan onto a plate then slide it back into the pan to brown the other side
when cooked through turn out onto a serving plate, cool slightly and slice into wedges
