Sweet caramelized flavor. If you grow your own, leave them in the ground for a few weeks at below-freezing temperatures so the starch has time to change into sugar. Make sure to cut out the woody center. This recipe really lets their natural flavor shine! I got this recipe from an online newspaper, and hastily copied it down. Posted here for safe keeping.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. Peel the parsnips and cut into french-fry sized sticks, avoiding the woody center.
  3. Toss parsnips with remaining ingredients, and place on a rimmed baking sheet.
  4. Roast until the edges brown, and the parsnips are tender, about 20 minutes.

What a wonderful way to prepare parsnips. It's lucky that they are on sale this week, because I will be buying lots more to make this again and again. My only change was to use smoked paprika. Next time I'll make one more change -- I'll double the recipe. We loved these. I noticed that you have posted only two recipes. If you have more like this, you'd better get busy posting them. Thanks for a real winner.

I love parsnips and this recipe does them justice. I used hot paprika and a generous amount of pepper. Simple easy, tasty recipe. I only sprayed them with "No Oil" - didn't use any Olive oil
