Parsnip is most often cooked in soups and gratin and less often in stir fries or sautés. I personally very much like the taste of sautéed parsnip.
If cooking time is kept short, I quite enjoy a more flavoursome fried taste with a reasonable level of intact nutrients.
There’s one thing I can never get enough of is scrambled tofu. And no MoFo would be complete with some delicious scramble tofu for a Saturday brunch!
I have long been tossing the idea of adding diced parsnip to my tofu scramble. I’m glad I tried because it was a well tasty brunch!
