Oven-Roasted Parsnips from Food.com: My kids ate them - even the picky eater! (I shook the parsnips in a bag with olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, salt and thyme - will not do thyme next time). Packed them in husband's lunch the next day - didn't know he wasn't eating french fries. A little sweeter than potatoes, but with more vitamins and fiber than taters. Slightly sweet and spiced to taste, these are a fun alternative to regular oven-baked french fries.
