Olive oil is often used as a building block for cooking, but in this recipe extra virgin olive oil isn’t just a background ingredient. The fruity flavor of olive oil pairs well with earthy parsnips and sweet-tart dried cranberries while also giving a shiny coating.



  1. Combine 1/2 cup water, the parsnips, cranberries, maple syrup, 1 tablespoon olive oil, the coriander, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium low, cover and cook until tender, 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Uncover and add the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon water and the lemon juice. Cook, stirring, until glazed, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the parsley; season with salt.
