This cooking skill shows you how to dice parsnip. Parsnip is closely related to the carrot and can be used in a wide range of recipes, such as roasted parsnips, roasted root vegetables, and mild korma and parsnip soup.
- Firstly, wash, peel and rewash the parsnips.
- Remove the top (wider end) and cut lengthways into the widths you require for your dice.
- Place each strip of parsnip onto your board and cut into long finger shape strips, again the width of the dice you require.
- Gather the parsnip strips together and cut across them to dice the parsnip (cubes) to the size you require.
