Pay Attention to the Parsnip

Parsnips were enjoyed by the ancient Greeks and Romans, but it seems that for many of us modern-day cooks, the pale root vegetable often gets lost in the shuffle. We’re not sure of its place (somewhere between turnips and carrots?) so often it’s omitted from our shopping cart.

Do you know what can bring it back to your table? Bacon lardons and lots of cream, that’s what. One taste of this soup from Chef Michael Kramer of The Lazy Goat in Greenville, SC, and parsnips will be hard to forget.
