A couple of weeks ago, I was at the farmer’s market and I stumbled upon these huge parsnips. Parsnips are root vegetables that are closely related to carrots and have a spiced flavor in comparison to a carrot’s sweet flavor. Parsnips are typically used in soups, stews, and as roasted vegetables. I have used parsnips in stews, but I have never roasted them before. I thought Roasted Garlic Parsnips would be a quick and easy last minute side dish
First, you would need to clean and peel the parsnips and cut them into equal sizes. I cut them similar to steak fries, but you can cut them however you like. Next, coat a baking sheet with cooking spray and spread the parsnips on the baking sheet. Drizzle with olive and salt and pepper to your taste, and then place in preheated oven.
While the parsnips are baking, mince 4 cloves of garlic and sauté in a sauce pan with two tablespoons of olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter. You just want to cook the garlic until it becomes fragrant. Once the parsnips come out of the oven, pour the garlic mixture over the parsnips and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. They came out crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
This is a quick and simple dish for the holiday or just because. EAT and Enjoy and let me know how you liked them!
