Mushroom and parsnip stew

This easy to make and ready in no time mushroom and parsnip stew is low in calories, filling and rich in protein and fiber.

This is a very versatile recipe. Use whatever mushrooms you have on hand, and if you have one or many kinds, that’s perfectly fine. I love mixing wild mushrooms with regular or chestnut champignons.
I paired mushrooms with parsnip in this recipe. Mainly for their delicious naturally nutty, earthy flavor but you can easily substitute parsley with sweet or regular potatoes, carrots or prepare the stew with just mushrooms.

What to serve mushroom and parsnip stew with?

Stew tastes delicious on its own and served with bread or a side salad. You can also pour it over pasta or rice; serve with potatoes, barley, couscous, bulgur or quinoa.
