Roasted Parsnips Recipe
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Lunch/Dinner
Phase: 3
Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 lb fresh parsnips - well rinsed & peeled
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ cup fresh chopped parsley
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  2. Carefully slice the parsnips into ½ inch rounds. (Raw parsnips can be very firm, and the shape of the vegetable makes it one of the more difficult ones to slice, so this is definitely a job for an adult. Let the kiddos do the peeling!)
  3. Lay the parsnip rounds out in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet.
  4. Sprinkle all of the spices over the parsnips before drizzling the water evenly over the pan.
  5. Bake the parsnips for 10 minutes, before removing them from the oven to turn them over, and then place the sheet back in the oven to roast the parsnips on the other side for another ten minutes.
  6. After the parsnips have baked, remove the sheet from the oven and let it cool for five minutes.
  7. Transfer the parsnips to a serving dish and toss them well with the fresh parsley to create this beautifully fresh dish.
  8. Enjoy!
