Roasted Parsnips or Carrots
If you've never had parsnips, this is the perfect recipe to try them! Sweet and crunchy, you'll fall in love immediately.
- 1 lb. parsnips or carrots or use a combination of both
- 1 - 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 tsp. kosher salt sea salt, or other coarse salt
- 1/8 - 1/4 tsp. black pepper
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Cut the parsnips and/or carrots lengthwise into halves or quarters (depending on their size) and cut those strips into 1-inch pieces.
In a roasting pan, toss the pieces with the oil, salt, and pepper (add ½ - 1 tsp. fresh thyme, if desired).
Roast them until they are lightly browned, 15 - 20 minutes, tossing once. The longer they cook, the sweeter they become.
