Citrus glazed carrots with her cousin parsnip

March 3, 2011

Author Notes: I love how these vegetables look together on a plate. During the holidays I garnish them with pomegranate seeds. You can use cilantro instead of the mint and any type of citrus and even add some lime and lemon to the orange juice make it a bit more acidic. I used tangerine in this rendition. Make sure to cut out the wood center of the parsnips.flavoristabarr
