Roast parsnips and carrots for a quick and easy side to a family meal. This recipe makes a flavorful dish and only requires 5 ingredients.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 475°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.

Step 2

Cut carrots and parsnips in half lengthwise and into 2-inch or 3-inch lengths and so all pieces are same thickness. Toss carrots and parsnips with 2 Tbsp. oil, season with salt, and spread in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Roast until vegetables begin to brown, 20 to 25 minutes, shaking pan 2 or 3 times during cooking time.

Step 3

Mix remaining oil, garlic and thyme. Remove baking sheet from oven; drizzle mixture over vegetables and toss. Roast until vegetables are well-browned, 5 minutes more.

I made this as a side dish for Thanksgiving and everyone thought they were great. Next time I make this I will try it on the grill. Its a keeper.

A friend gave me some parsnips out of his garden. I had never tried them before and I used this recipe tonight. I loved them and/or it! The parsnips almost reminded me of oven fries - only healthier. I used olive oil rather than vegetable oil. This would be a fun side dish for Thanksgiving although not necessarily a "special occassion recipe."
