Super Crispy Crunchy Roast Parsnips are the perfect accompaniment to a Roast dinner. Crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside!
Servings: 4
  • 4 Parsnips. Try and choose ones where the end is fat as well as the top.
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • Salt and Pepper for seasoning
  1. Preheat oven to 220C or 425F.

    Peel the parsnips and cut the ends off. Then cut lengthways down the middle, and again down the middle. This leaves you with 4 long pieces. Then cut the parsnips in half so you have 8 pieces per parsnip. They should look a bit like a finger of a fat chip/fry!

  2. Place in a saucepan with cold water and a pinch of salt, and bring to the boil.
  3. Keep an eye on the parsnips once the water starts to boil. After approximately 7 - 10 minutes drain the parsnips and set aside. (7 -10 minutes is from when the water starts to boil)
  4. Whilst the parsnips are in the saucepan cooking, place a baking pan with the oil in and leave until hot and sizzling.
  5. Then place the parsnips in the hot oil and spoon some of the oil over them. Cook for about 15 minutes, turning them over halfway through. If they are not golden and crispy like in the photo, leave them in for a little longer.
  6. When done, place on some kitchen paper then serve with your dinner. You may wish to sprinkle some salt and pepper
