Fruit and Root: Parsnips with wild berries Recipe

Sweet parsnip roots cooked up with slightly tart wild bramble berries makes one of our favorite Fruit and Root Recipes. Sweet enough to be dessert, especially with some honey and cinnamon.


  • 2 Large Parsnips Sliced into 1/4 inch thick rounds
  • 2 cups wild raspberries and wild blackberries fresh or frozen is fine
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • honey, cinnamon, nutmeg optional, as desired


  1. Cook parsnips and coconut oil in medium size frying pan until parsnips are tender throughout. Stir frequently to prevent burning. About 5-8 minutes.

  2. Add berries to parsnips. Stir to mix and cook with lid on for another 5 minutes to allow for berries to soften and to blend flavors.

  3. Add honey, cinnamon, or nutmeg for extra flavors as desired

Recipe Notes

All of our Fruit and Root Recipes are adaptable to a vegan oil free diet. Instead of cooking in a frying pan with coconut oil, the parsnips and berries can be placed in a baking dish with a lid and cooked in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes. I will usually add a little water  when I bake this to be sure to help the parsnips steam nicely.
