Baked parsnips, an honest Irish side dish.
- Peel and quarter the parsnips and boil for 15 minutes but do not let them cook completely (par-boil).
- Place in a large dish and add the Beef Stock , salt, pepper and nutmeg as required.
- Spread with butter and cook for 30 minutes on a lowish oven heat.
As a variation, sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over the parsnips before baking them. The cheese will make a golden crust that may not be very Irish but it is very appetizing.
