Savory Parsnips

Ingredients

  • 1 pound small parsnips (about 8), peeled, trimmed
  • 1 pound carrots (about 6), peeled, trimmed
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 6 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ½ cup finely chopped parsley

Instructions

  1. Boil: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add whole parsnips and carrots. Cook until tender (test by poking with a fork), 15 to 17 minutes.
  2. Mash: Meanwhile, using a mortar and pestle (or heavy knife) smash together garlic, salt, pepper and cumin. Whisk together with orange juice, oil and lemon juice. Set aside.
  3. Slice: When vegetables are cooked, drain. Note: Small parsnips should have tender cores about the diameter of a pencil. If you find wide, woody cores, slice the parsnip lengthwise, cut out and discard the core. Slice parsnips and carrots crosswise on the diagonal into ¼-inch-thick ovals.
  4. Caramelize: Set a wide skillet (or two) over medium heat. Melt butter. Slide in sliced parsnips and carrots. Cook, turning now and then, until most of the slices have become golden brown, about 8 minutes.
  5. Deglaze: Pour in the orange juice mixture. Reduce heat to low; cook, tossing, 1 minute.
  6. Serve: Slide everything into a serving dish. Sprinkle with parsley (and more salt and pepper if need be). Enjoy at room temperature. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

    Blogs

    When Mel Brooks talks about a sequel to Spaceballs, ‘80s fans are tempted to politely smile and nod our heads. It’s a joke, we figure, because how can you possibly recapture the magic of the 1987 Star Wars spoof, especially since John Candy has passed away.
