Dice parsnip

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.


  1. Firstly, wash, peel and rewash the parsnips.
  2. Remove the top (wider end) and cut lengthways into the widths you require for your dice.
  3. Place each strip of parsnip onto your board and cut into long finger shape strips, again the width of the dice you require.
  4. Gather the parsnip strips together and cut across them to dice the parsnip (cubes) to the size you require.
