A new bright taste for root vegetables. Since parsnips, due to their sugar content cook faster than carrots, add the parsnips after the carrots have been cooking for approximately 7 minutes. Yoghurt sauce is refreshing but could be omitted if you're in a hurry but it does add nutrition. Thanks for this addition to my root vegetable cookery.
