REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
At the grocery store my daughter saw parsnips and insisted I buy them. I thought oh great what am I going to do with these? This recipe was not only easy but she and my son both thought they were delicious. Always happy to find a way to make my kids love veggies!

Just using what I had in the fridge, I had some gyoza, and lettuce from the garden. This worked well as a side. I cut the brown sugar to 2 tsp and added a tsp of rice wine vinegar. Used 3 parsnips for 8 oz total clean.
