The warming recipe includes a hint of star anise within Chinese five-spice powder that gives this dish character. You can chop and change the vegetables a little depending on what you have in your kitchen – celeriac instead of parsnip, for instance, or shredded cabbage rather than sprouts – but this is a particularly fun way of using Brussels sprouts in a meal.
Parsnip Mashed Potatoes- Description It started with parsnips. Lately, it seems like every cooking show I watch, they’re doing something with parsnips. I’d never even heard of parsnips before last month, and now they’re everywhere. I suppose that’s how it always goes. So what is a parsnip? Parsnips are a root vegetable; they look like white carrots, only less sweet. So, I decided that for my first parsnip dish, I’d go with something I mastered long ago.
