"Good motives butter no parsnips, and hell is paved with buttered parsnips." -Irvin S. Cobb, Author
Chili is the best. Easy to make, simple to clean up, great for leftovers, and really great for you. I like this white bean version because it uses the sweetness of parsnips and the creaminess of the beans - and the potatoes work great for thickening. Your kids won't even know there are vegetables in it - the parsnips are easily mistaken for more potatoes.
