Honey Roasted Parsnips and Carrots

These Honey Roasted Parsnips and Carrots are a great way to enjoy seasonal fall root vegetables.

Honey Roasted Parsnips and Carrots - my kids LOVED these!

I originally posted this recipe in October of 2015. I have been craving roasted veggies so much lately and was eying parsnips at the store yesterday so I remembered how much we loved them prepared this way.

It’s my favorite time of the year – fall! So much to love about fall, but for me I really do love the shift in what we are eating. Summer food is fresh and fun, but fall brings in so many warm flavors to experiment with – wouldn’t you agree?

I’m really trying to change things up at home lately and introduce some new foods to my family. Carrots are obviously not new, but parsnips are! I’ve made them for myself before and loved their unique taste, and I couldn’t wait to try them again. To help my family (specifically my kids) be more open to trying a new veggie, I thought it would be helpful to pair them up with a vegetable they are very familiar with and already love – carrots. We eat roasted carrots almost weekly so it was nice to change it up just slightly with these Honey Roasted Parsnips and Carrots recipe.

I sliced up the carrots and parsnips into “sticks” so they were more like a finger food. You can do this easily by cutting any long vegetable at an angle, then cutting again longways. As soon as they came out of the oven my kids gravitated toward them, first saying how good they smelled, then asking to try them. I could not keep them from eating them right off the baking sheet!

That’s always a good sign.

Don’t forget to sprinkle them with plenty of kosher or sea salt. It’s all good, trust me!

These veggies would be absolutely delicious served with Mini Honey Mustard Meatloaves or Cajun Baked Salmon Cakes.
