4 cups shredded, peeled parsnips
1 cup finely chopped scallions (I used leeks because I didn't have scallions)
1/2 cup flour
2 tsp canola oil plus extra for frying (I used grapeseed oil because that's in my house)
1/2 tsp salt
Fresh black pepper
1/3 cup water
Combine the parsnips and scallions in a bowl, mix together. Add the flour, oil, salt, and pepper, tossing to coat. Add water and mix.
Preheat skillet over medium high heat. Add oil. Make sure the pan is hot. Form any size patty you would like. Cook about 3 minutes per side or until nicely browned. Serve immediately.
