So these are a great side to, well...ANYTHING. They're easy to make and they just so happen to be yummy, as well! So if you don't know what a parsnip looks like, it looks like this...
So basically, they look like white carrots. They're softer than carrots and have a totally different flavor, they're kinda sweet. But they're great! This recipe is simple, so let's get to it:
4 parsnips, peeled
1/2 tbsp agave
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp thyme
Preheat the oven to 425. Mix all the ingredients except the parsnips in a bowl. Then cut the parsnips in half then in quarters. The thicker the pieces, the longer they take to cook. Toss the cut parsnips in the balsamic mixture and coat well.
Lay the parsnips on a lined or greased cookie sheet, in a single layer. Place in the oven for 20 mins. Turning about halfway through, 10 mins into it. Remove from the oven when the time is up and enjoy!
Thanks for being healthy!
