Recipe Redux: Roasted Rosemary Parsnips

Is there any vegetable more “retro” than the parsnip? I can’t think of one!  I associate parsnips as one of those vegetables that your parents would try to make you eat.  I think of parsnips as being in the same league as brussel sprouts, something you might not like until you’re older and your taste buds have matured.


For this month’s Recipe Redux Challenge, we are going back in time to make a “Vintage Side Dish.” For my recipe, I chose to work with the slightly unpopular parsnip. Despite it’s boring appearance, it is actually quite the nutrition powerhouse. In fact, the parnsip is even richer in vitamins and minerals than it’s more vibrant look alike- the carrot.

Traditionally, parnips are served at an English Christmas dinner, but I think this recipe will go well with any holiday meal.  With this simple and savory recipe, I’m attempting to increase the parsnips popularity.  It’s the perfect healthy side dish, right in time for Thanksgiving.


Parsnips have a very unique smell, and while these were being roasted with the rosemary, my home was filled with a delicious scent.  I couldn’t wait for them to be done!


Why do roasted vegetables always taste so good?
