Oh no! These were dated today so I bought two bags. Can I par boil then freeze them, for roasting in the future?

I bought 4lbs of parsnips in Asda today for 20p! All chopped, peeled and lightly roasted with garlic – now in the slow cooker with some curry powder then will blend into soup and freeze in portions that will have cost a couple of pennies each.
