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.

  2. Author Randy Wayne White could open St. Pete's biggest restaurant on the pier

    Food & Dining

    ST. PETERSBURG — The story begins with Yucatan shrimp.

    St. Petersburg Deputy Mayor Kanika Tomalin, pilot Mark Futch, Boca Grande, St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman, and author and businessman Randy Wayne White,  Sanibel, exit a Maule Super Rocket seaplane after taking a fight around Tampa Bay off the St. Petersburg waterfront, 6/28/17.  White and his business partners are in negotiations with the City of St. Petersburg to build a fourth Doc Ford's Rum Bar & Grille on the approach to the St. Petersburg Pier with a second event space on the pier according to White. The group met near Spa Beach after a ground breaking ceremony for the new pier. "We want to have our business open by the time the pier opens," said White. Other Dr. Ford restaurants are located on Sanibel, Captiva and Ft. Myers Beach. SCOTT KEELER   |   Times
