A lot of people freak out at the carbohydrate contents of root vegetables- however a true hummus made of chick peas has 3x the amount of carbohydrate. Hence, wee lil parsnips get a bad rap and are actually a wonderfully healthy alternative to chickpea. Without the embarrassing aftermath of gas that can raise your doona cover!
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Peel and cube the parsnips.
Drizzle a couple tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil along with a pinch of sea salt and a few grinds of black pepper.
Roast for around 45 minutes or until fork tender and golden brown.
