Curried Parsnips

overwhatweight:

& I dont plan on having any no time soon, so I’m clueless to what I will be eating for thanksgiving. I will be with my family for this event and I don’t expect them to change up the menu for me. I guess I will have to start looking online for alternatives since most likely I will have to bring my…

If you have the room and time, definitely make a dish to share! I recommend checking out my stuffing recipe or try curried parsnips. It’s a “side dish” but very satisfying. I prepared this with roasted garlic Brussels Sprouts and soysage stuffing.

  • 2 lbs parsnips, peeled, halved, and thinly sliced
  • 1 leek or 2 scallions or 1/2 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar (if it’s on hand!)
  • dash of soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt
  • Garlic, crushed or minced
  1. Steam the parsnips until they are almost tender then remove from stove.
  2. In a frying pan, saute garlic, onion (or leek/scallions) in olive oil.
  3. Add mirin, soy sauce, curry powder, and salt. Add parsnips. Feel free to add a bit of water so that the veggies don’t stick.
  4. When the parsnips are tender and completely covered in curry, do a taste test. Add more salt, curry, or soy to taste.

Good luck!

Over What Weight?: Haven’t had a serving of meat in almost a month

My name is Shayla and I talk about food. A lot. I live in Brooklyn, NY where I work as a data nerd in the startup world. As much as I wish I could say I've been a healthy vegetarian for the past 8 years, I can't. I started off as many veg's do: eating primarily processed soy products, pasta, and pizza. I also brought meat back into my diet when I started a job in catering. When I realized that cutting out meat didn't make me feel any better and I was still gaining weight, I decided I needed to make some major changes. I started experimenting and researching; I found that the fresher the food was, the more I enjoyed it. I believe we are what we eat. How we feel and what we eat is so profoundly interconnected. It's impossible to exclude factors like diet and lifestyle when you are trying feel better overall. I understand how difficult eating (or just finding) healthy food can be which brings me to this blog. I aspire to help people make healthy living easier. 2birds1scone is a place for suggestions, inspiration and shared information. It's about bringing healthier perspectives to every part of your life.
