Personally, I hate parsnips and they give me gas. Yuck! I'm going to try to find an alternative to use in this recipe.
Yes parsnip's difficult, bitter qualities can result in gas if the digestive system can't process it efficiently. Sweet potato or carrot might be easier-to-digest substitutions!
Both! Lol! But if bitterness is desired, I'm thinking maybe celery (with leaves, minced) or bitter herbs/greens like rocket.
