Parsnip is most often cooked in soups and gratin and less often in stir fries or sautés. I personally very much like the taste of sautéed parsnip.
If cooking time is kept short, I quite enjoy a more flavoursome fried taste with a reasonable level of intact nutrients.
There’s one thing I can never get enough of is scrambled tofu. And no Saturday brunch would be complete with some delicious scramble tofu!
I have long been tossing the idea of adding diced parsnip to my tofu scramble. I’m glad I tried because it was a well tasty brunch! This tofu scramble is incredibly tasty with the addition of some black bean sauce. You might also like this Vegetable Tofu Scramble recipe with crunchy bean sprouts.

For some reason I’ve never cooked with parsnips – this scramble looks delicious, and a good reason to finally try them.
Yum! Your scramble looks delicious, and now I’ll have to try parsnip in mine!
That is a fantastic idea! I also like sauteed parsnips a lot.
