Roasted Parsnips and Carrots

Adapted from Roasted Parsnips with Cinnamon and Coriander from

3/4 lb parsnips (from the garden)

3/4 lb carrots (form the garden)

1/4 cup olive oil

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp ground coriander

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp Kosher salt

2 tsp fresh lemon juice


Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 375F.

Peel the parsnips and carrots and cut each into 1″ pieces crosswise, then cut thicker pieces into halves or quarters to get pieces of about equal size. If the cores of the parsnips seem to tough, cut them out.


Arrange in a single layer in a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat evenly.


Combine the cumin, coriander, paprika and salt in a small bowl and stir to mix.


Sprinkle the spice mix evenly over the vegetables and toss until well coated.


Roast until completely tender and lightly browned on the edges, 40 – 60 minutes stirring once or twice while cooking.
