    Parsnips.... I'm in love.

    Primal Fuel
    I hate myself for waiting almost 35 years to eat a parsnip.

    I made kind of a "tuber stew" in the crock pot Monday with a grass fed bone in chuck roast, carrots, parsnips, turnip, and celery.. was amazed at how similar to potatos the chunked parsnips were.

    So last night I made Parsnip "fries" in the oven.. seasoned with olive oil, paprika, chile powder, salt and pepper... wow.

    That is all.

    You can also steam and mash them. Non Primal people would never know they are not being served spuds. And the leftovers mixed with some egg make great pancakes for breakfast.

    I adore parsnip mash -- it's delightful covering a lamb cottage pie.

    Steamed and then roasted in a hot oven until they're crisp and browned. My god. They are marvelous.

    I've also recently discovered the wonders of parsnip. Everyone loves them and they are so cheap too!

    I roasted some veggies in the oven the other night, including parsnips, and my son went crazy over them. I've never made them for my family, this was the first time, and he can't wait until I make them again!

    I love parsnips! Another tuber that I didn't try until my 30s is kohlrabi. It's so yummy. I peel it and cut it up matchstick size with my v-slicer. Then I cook it in boiling water for about 5 minutes. I finish it in a pan with a little butter and garlic. Maybe some grated parm. It also makes great "hash browns" the next day with a little egg mixed in.

    ETA: It's also not very high carb, all things considered. 7g per 100g vs 17g per 100g for a parsnip.

    I fell in love with fennel recently, after spending 31 years avoiding them!

    My sentiments exactly. (I, too, waited the same number of years.)
