Frieda's Specialty Produce - Parsley Root


What is a Parsley Root?

  • This Old World vegetable is largely used in eastern Europe in soups and stews. It is also known as turnip-rooted parsley. Parsley root is a subspecies of parsley that is grown specifically for its roots. The leaves may be eaten and used like common parsley. The flavor of the roots is a blend of carrots and celery.

How to Eat

  • Remove tops and keep for flavoring or garnish, if desired. Clean roots with a vegetable brush or peeler. If roots are small, they may be cooked whole or cut, sliced, diced into braises, stews, and soups. Boil or steam and serve with a little butter and salt & pepper. Parsley root is good when puréed with other vegetables such as potatoes and carrots.
