Simply Roasted Parsnips

I love parsnips — they are easily one of my favorite sources of a good carb.    I love them mashed.  But it’s easier to roast them, and that’s what I do most often.  Here’s a quick and easy way you can prepare them.




  • 1 lb. parsnips (about 4-5 large), peeled & chopped
  • 3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Try to chop your parsnips in pieces that are even in size — sometimes the tips can be really slender.
  3. Place the chopped parsnips in an 8×8 baking dish, and toss with olive oil.
  4. In a small bowl, mix the spices together.  Sprinkle the spices over your parsnips and give them another toss until they’re well coated.
  5. Roast in the oven for a total of 30 minutes — stir them around at 15 minutes for even cooking and browning.
