Curried Parsnips with Basil and Coconut

Curried Parsnips with Basil and Coconut

This recipe uses a one-pot, two-step cooking technique, first simmering parsnips in a small amount of water in a covered pot, then removing the lid and letting the liquid cook off. This ensures perfectly cooked vegetables that are nicely glazed. The flavors of curry, turmeric and mustard seeds are a good counterpoint to the naturally sweet parsnips; crisp coconut flakes add another layer of flavor and some crunch. To toast the coconut, spread in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet and bake at 350°F until light golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes.

Tip

Don’t use super-sized parsnips, as we’ve found they can taste bitter. Look for ones that are medium to large and weigh about 6 ounces each. Also, don’t stir more than once or twice while the parsnips are simmering in the covered pot. Lifting the lid allows heat and steam to escape, which slows the cooking and may cause the pot to run dry.
