Different plans can calculate some of these things a bit differently, but because of the calorie and carbohydrate count, I would consider it a carbohydrate.

I follow an exchange plan, and carbohydrate choices (fruits and starch exchanges) generally contains between 50 to 80 calories. Vegetable exchanges contain 35 calories or less per serving (usually about 1/2 cup cooked, or 1 cup raw).

1/2 cup of cooked parsnips contain 55 calories, so I would call it a carbohydrate or starch. I double checked in my "Exchanges for All Exchanges" book, and they list 1/2 cup of cooked parsnips as one starch/carbohydrate.
