Roasted Parsley Root

Parsley root, found in markets with a large Jewish, German, or Polish clientele, tastes like a cross between carrots and celery. Try roasting it using this recipe from chef Marcus Samuelsson's "New American Table" cookbook for delicious results. Use in his Lamb Stew (pictured), if desired.

  • servings: 6

Ingredients

  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 cup long beans or green beans, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 cups peeled 2-inch cubes parsley root or celery root
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped thyme
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped mint
  • 2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts, chopped

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Bring half of the lemon juice and 2 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add beans and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from liquid with a slotted spoon; set aside. Add parsley root to liquid and cook for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.

  2. Step 2

    Add olive oil to skillet and heat over medium heat. Add garlic, thyme, and parsley root; cook, stirring, until garlic is golden, about 5 minutes.
