Roasted Parsnips are simple to make and incredibly delicious as a vegetable side to any dinner. They have a natural sweetness that caramelizes in the oven for a delicious flavor.
1/4tspfreshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 425F.
Peel the parsnips, then cut into evenly sized matchsticks.
Place in a large bowl and toss with the olive oil, salt, and pepper.
Evenly distribute the parsnips on a baking sheet in a single layer, making sure they have a little room on the sides to brown and caramelize.
Roast for about 20-25 minutes, until the parsnips are starting to turn golden brown on the edges. Toss the parsnips to redistribute, then roast for another 10-15 minutes, until tender and golden.
Serve warm and enjoy!
Note on cooking times: The exact time varies depending on how big the matchsticks are, so make sure to check on them once in a while to see if they've become caramelized and fork tender. That's when you know they're done.
