Parsnip Recipes

Root Vegetable 'Crumble' with Cheesy Topping
This is a delicious recipe for baby or Chantenay carrots and other roots veggies. The secret ingredient gives it a warming kick. Make the most of your turnips, swedes, parsnips and sweet potatoes. You can also use celeriac or kohlrabi.
Lentil Dahl
This is a warming autumn supper, packed with nutrients from the lentils and veggies, giving your system a real boost.
Chilli Non Carne
Not everyone wants to use minced beef or Quorn for a chilli, so here's a meat-free version that's proved a hit with even dedicated carnivores.
Mushroom And Winter Veg Pie
This is a real winter warming treat. The flavour from the mushrooms makes the dish, so it’s important to get a variety of them, with strong flavours – no button mushrooms here, thank you…
Roast Parsnip
Roast Parsnip is a delicious and simple way of serving this autumnal vegetable. The roasting cooks the parsnip slowly, making them even sweeter than they already are. Throw in a few spare carrots and double the veggie quota. And experiment with adding herbs or even balsamic vinegar to the mix for extra flavour.
Sweet Millet Surprise

This delicious recipe has been provided by Wholefood Harmony. As well as being delicious when made with parsnips, it also works very well with cauliflower and butternut squash.

Denise Tolson's Smoked Haddock and Early Apples
Apples come into season in the UK in August, and there are varieties in season all the way through till the end of March.

Denise Tolson, VegBox Regular and our "Appointed Apple-Afficionado for August", recommends a savoury recipe using smoked haddock and early season apples.
Denise Tolson's Bramley, Cox and Celeriac Dish
This recipe was provided to us by Denise Tolson (of Jerusalem Artichoke fame!). She got it from her mum. We love it because it uses not one but TWO types of apple, and unlike our other celeriac and apple recipe, this one is really quite luxurious. Enjoy!

Thanks to The Bramley Apple Information Service for the photo.
Cream Of Asparagus Soup

Cream of asparagus soup is a great way to use up any woody ends of asparagus spears or any late season asparagus that's a bit too tough to use in side dishes or salads.

It works well with green or white asparagus, so use whatever you can get hold of.
