Yield

Serves 4 (serving size: 3/4 cup)

If you're not familiar with parsnips, they look like white carrots and have a decidedly sweet, earthy flavor. Avoid larger parsnips, which tend to have tough, woody cores.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound parsnips, peeled and sliced into thin strips
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sherry vinegar
