This is fast becoming my new favorite side dish. Amazing things happen when the maple syrup cooks down… it becomes sticky and almost candy like. I urge you to try this dish tonight! Parsnips are very inexpensive and who doesn’t have some maple syrup on hand? (Pssst…. if you don’t, you can substitute with honey!)
- 1 bag of parsnips
- 2 tbs maple syrup
- salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400.
Peel and remove ends from parsnips. Halve them length wise and cut into about 2″ chunks. Toss them in a baking dish with maple syrup, salt and pepper.
Roast for about 30 minutes.
Remove, allow to cool (don’t burn your mouth because you can’t wait like me) and enjoy!
