    I know this post is from a while ago, so I hope you see this and are able to respond! Would you consider this a savory dish? Not too sweet? Like it would go well with steak and a side of green beans? Thanks Laura- YOU ARE AMAZING!

      Hi love! You are a amazing too!!! Thank you! Yes, I would definitely consider this a savory side dish, and it should be delicious with that meal. But do note that parsnips are naturally sweet, so it will have some sweetness!
