Instructions
  1. Peel and trim carrots and parsnips. Cut into 2" lengths and then slice a small amount from one side to allow the piece to sit flat. Slice a small amount off remaining 3 sides to square up the piece (see note). Cut into 1/4" slices and then cut each slice into 1/4" batons.
  2. Heat butter in a medium skillet until foamy, add garlic and sauté for 30-60 seconds, stirring once or twice. Add in carrots and parsnips, stir to coat with butter and garlic. Add water, cover and cook over medium heat for about 4-5 minutes, stirring once or twice.
  3. Remove cover and increase heat to high to evaporate any left over water and allow the vegetables to finish cooking, about 3-4 minutes ( they will start to caramelize slightly).
  4. Once they are cooked to your liking, remove from heat and stir in honey, parsley, salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

-if using salted butter, adjust additional salt to taste.

-the 2" sections do not need to be perfectly square as that much trimming creates a lot of waste. What is important, is to make sure they are similar in size for even cooking.

Instructions
Parsnip Pumpkin Bake
  1. Preheat oven to 350℉. Peel and trim ends from parsnips, cut into 1" chunks. Boil or steam until tender, about 10 minutes depending on size. Drain well and mash with a fork or potato masher until all large chunks are broken down. The parsnips will remain stringy with small bits still visible. While parsnips are cooking, grate a cleaned piece of raw pumpkin flesh using a fine grater. Add grated pumpkin to mashed parsnips along butter, brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt. Stir to combine. Spread evenly into a small buttered casserole dish (makes about 3 cups). Sprinkle topping evenly over casserole and bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until golden and starting to bubble in the center. Remove and allow to rest for 2-3 minutes.
Topping
  1. Mix all ingredients in a small bowl until butter is broken down and mixture is crumbly.
Recipe Notes

Be sure to use a fine grater to grate the pumpkin. Recipe yields about 3 cups.
