Step by Step Method

Step 1

Heat skillet to medium high and add butter and olive oil. When melted, add diced red onion and thinly sliced carrot.

Step 2

Sauté over medium high heat for about 3 minutes until onions are nearly translucent and carrots are soft.

Step 3

Add shredded parsnips and vegetable broth and turn heat down to medium high.

Step 4

Cook for about 15 more minutes stirring occasionally.

Step 5

Covering it will speed up cook time. I like to cook mine down until it is dry. You decide how moist you want these. 15 minutes should cook the parsnips.

Step 6

Add shredded cheese and parsley. Remove from heat if desired, or turn up the heat for a few seconds to brown the cheese.

Step 7

YUM! If you used Parmesan instead of the Pecorino Romano, feel free to add a little salt! Enjoy~

Cooking the parsnips in the broth with the onion gave them a lovely flavour. I didn't add the cheese but I think it would be wonderful to top off the recipe. I used my mini chopper instead of shredding them - it worked and made it so easy. The parsnips cook very quickly with the lid on and then I left it off for the last 5 minutes. Thanks Michelle for a lovely veggie dish
