Herb Roasted Parsnips & Carrots

This dish was my Thanksgiving contribution.  Everyone from my 1 year old cousin to my 90 year old grandfather LOVED this dish.  It will be playing on repeat all winter in our house. So simple. So Yum.

Parsnips: contain a wide variety of vitamins, minerals & nutrients, including dietary fiber, folate, potassium and vitamin C. read more here


  • 1 pound of Parsnips
  • 1 pound of Carrots (I used Rainbow Carrots)
  • Fresh Herbs: Thyme, Rosemary, Sage (I used all 3!)
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper (optional)

Serves 6

First we are starting with our Herb infused Olive Oil.  I used fresh Thyme, Rosemary and Sage. Wash your herbs well.  Take the leaves off the stems and place in a small bowl.

Pour your favorite Olive Oil over the fresh herbs and let it marinate.  I let mine sit for 6 hours before pouring over my root veggies.  Ideally, I’d let it sit for 24 hours (and mix it, muddle the herbs a few times to extract more flavor into the oil).

Scrub or peel your parsnips & cut them into sticks, or rounds.  I cut mine into sticks.
