Recipe | Braised Parsnips with Maple Syrup and Pecans | L’Orenta Nuts

One way to brighten your holiday is to spice it up with braised carrots and brown sugar. Pecans are great in many holiday recipes. This includes pecan pie, braised parsnips with maple syrup, and pecans. 

It has a soothing taste because of the natural combination of the pecans with the extraordinary sweetness and freshness of the parsnips pairs. Here is our recommendation for the best ingredients to make it:

  • ¼ teaspoon of ground coriander seeds 
  • ½ cup of Pecan Halves 
  • ½ teaspoon of lightly crushed ground cumin seeds
  • ¼ tablespoon of salt 
  • 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter 
  • ½ cup of maple syrup 
  • 2-3 cups of water 
  • 8 medium parsnips thoroughly peeled with the ends trimmed and cut in half lengthwise to about 2 pounds 

Cooking Procedure

Put the butter into a saucepan and place over medium-high heat. Add the cumin, pecans, and coriander when you notice the butter turning brown and completely melted. Next, stir the pecans carefully and toast them for one minute together with the spices.

Take out the pecans from the pan and ensure you put them separately. Next, place the maple syrup and boil; ensure you reduce the heat so it can simmer and then cook. After 5 minutes of cooking the maple syrup, remove it from the heat and place it separately. 

In addition, put the parsnips into a large skillet carefully and add water to cover. Boil it, reduce the heat to allow simmer, and cook the parsnips for 15-20 minutes. Ensure the parsnips are tender when using a fork or knife tip to check.

Note: Parsnips vary in size so remember to put in a splash of water when cooking. Allow any leftover liquid to drain, and add a sprinkle of the parsnips with salt. You can serve right after adding seasoned pecans and reserved maple syrup mixture. Check out for more special recipes!
