Carrots and Parsnips are a Perfect Pair

Do you like parsnips? I love them. The unique flavour of parsnip pairs so well with the sweetness of carrots, so I often make them together like I did with this recipe. These Honey Roasted Carrots and Parsnips are sweet and have a delicious caramelized flavour. But if you don’t like parsnips, you can leave them out and just use carrots.

Tips & Tricks

  • Carrot and Parsnip Prep: I like to peel the carrots and parsnips, then slice them into strips. You also can cut them into circles if you prefer.
  • Can I make this without parsnips? Absolutely, but why would you?! Just use 10 carrots instead.
  • There’s no need to parboil. As long as the carrots and parsnips are cut evenly (no wider than 1/2 inch), they’ll roast just beautifully. You don’t need to boil them first.
  • Shake it, shake it, shake it! Make sure to give the baking dish a little shake or mix during the roasting time, to ensure even cooking.
