Step 1: Prepare the parsnips
Peel off the skin off of 4 parnips using a vegetable peeler. Cut them into evenly sized batons, about 2-3 inches long and 1/2 inch thick. This ensures even cooking and a consistent texture.
In a large bowl, combine the parsnips with 1-2 tbsp honey and a pinch of salt. Toss well, ensuring that the parsnips are evenly coated with the mixture. The salt pairs well with the sweetness of the honey to balance it out.
Step 2: Roast the parsnips
Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This will prevent the parsnips from sticking and make for easy cleanup.
Spread the seasoned parsnips in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. This allows them to roast evenly and develop a beautiful golden color. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and roast for about 25-30 minutes, or until the parsnips are tender and caramelized. Flip them once halfway through to ensure even browning.
Once the parsnips are cooked to perfection, remove them from the oven and transfer to a serving dish. If desired, garnish with fresh parsley or cilantro to add a touch of freshness and color. Serve hot as a delightful side dish alongside your favorite main course.
Can I use maple syrup instead of honey?
Yes, you can substitute honey with an equal amount of maple syrup if you prefer a different flavor profile. It will still give the parsnips a delightful sweetness.
Can I make honey roast parsnips ahead of time?
While the parsnips taste best when served immediately after roasting, you can prepare them in advance and reheat them in the oven at 180°C (350°F) for 10-15 minutes before serving.
Can I add other herbs and spices to this recipe?
Absolutely! Feel free to experiment with additional spices like garlic powder, dried rosemary, or even a pinch of chili flakes to customize the flavor according to your preference.
