What is a Parsnip?

Often overlooked, parsnips are a delicious and nutritious vegetable option. Parsnips are a root vegetable, closely related to carrots and parsley root.  They have a stronger and spicier taste compared to the carrot.

Parsnips are a good source of vitamin C, potassium and folate, and are high in fibre. A one cup serving of raw parsnips has just 100 calories, 17 grams of net carbs and 6 grams of fibre.
