30 minutes or fewer
Parsnips are out there, just waiting for you to discover their subtle sweetness. They come in many sizes, so try to get the small or medium ones (up to 8 inches long), as the giant ones tend to have a tough inner core that doesn’t soften up very well.
- 2 lb. parsnips, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces (6 medium parsnips)
- 2 Tbs. olive oil
- 2 tsp. balsamic vinegar, or to taste
- ½ tsp. salt
