Beautifully seasoned and spiced, these roasted parsnips make for a nutritious, healthy side dish that goes with pretty much anything.
4 parsnips cut into quarters, lengthways
2 tablespoons olive oil (plus more for greasing)
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika powder
1/2 teaspoon salt (plus extra for later)
Pinch of pepper
Garnish: 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley + 1 teaspoon zest of lemon
Preheat the oven to 200 C / 400 F.
Peel and cut the parsnips, place in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with spices, salt and pepper and coat evenly using your hands.
Place a piece of parchment paper on a flat baking tray and grease lightly with olive oil. Spread the parsnips and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
Serve sprinkled with fresh parsley and a little lemon zest (optional) or other fresh herbs of choice.
