Crunchy Parsnips

One of the crops in the veg garden that I am reasonably successful with is the Parsnip - not to everyones taste I know - but I luv'em.
The trouble is I have tried various methods to make them crunchy (which is how I like them best)
but failed miserably.
this Sunday
when I put together two different recipes
with the result
crispy, crunchy Parsnips with the Sunday roast chicken.
just as they should be.
All I did was parboil the quartered Parsnips
coat them in beaten egg
roll them in a mix of semolina and grated Parmesan cheese
then roasted them in the oven  for about
They were just so moreish.
Thank goodness I have plenty more in the garden
waiting to be crunched.


  1. I love parsnips, I'll have to try this recipe.

  2. It's a very underrated vegetable, I think. I'm looking forward to trying this recipe.

  3. I have to say that semolina is one of the few things that I really don't like but perhaps like this it would be a different story! Flighty xx

  4. Flighty - you do realise that the semolina is used dry like breadcrumbs - I can't imagine what parsnips rolled in cooked semolina would taste like!
