So, what is pastinak?

Pastinak, also known as parsnip, is a root vegetable that is closely related to carrots and parsley. It has a creamy white, elongated taproot with a slightly sweet and nutty taste. Pastinaks are rich in vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, potassium, and fiber, which makes them a great addition to a healthy diet. This versatile ingredient can be cooked in many ways, from roasting to mashing, and can be used in soups, stews, and as a side dish. Its subtle flavor pairs well with stronger spices and herbs like ginger, thyme, and nutmeg. Incorporating pastinaks into your recipes can add a unique and flavorful twist to your dishes.
