  • 1 pound parsnips
  • 1 ½ tablespoon olive oil (or 1 tablespoon olive oil + ½ tablespoon melted butter)
  • 1 ½ tablespoon honey
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • Optional garnish: drizzle of Balsamic reduction


  • PREHEAT OVEN to 425F. Line a pan with foil and spray with oil.
  • PREPARE PARSNIPS: Peel parsnips with vegetable peeler. Cut into even sticks, about ½ inch thick. By cutting them the same thickness, you will ensure they will finish cooking at the same time. In a medium bowl, toss parsnips with oil and honey. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss to coat evenly.
  • ROAST PARSNIPS AND SERVE: Place parsnips on lined pan in a single layer (no overlapping). Roast for 22-30 minutes, turning half way through, until soft when pierced with a fork and caramelized on the edges. Transfer to serving bowl and serve. If desired, drizzle with balsamic reduction before serving.


Make Ahead: Roast parsnips and set aside. Reheat in a 350F oven for about 8-10 minutes.
