Good morning friends! How was your weekend? Over here, it was just what I needed. Lots of lounging with my feet up, and catching up on reading and blogging related tasks. We enjoyed the white blanket outside and Tater thoroughly enjoyed her first snow!

I developed a love for roasted parsnips during grad school. Prior to that, I don’t recall ever having them, or at least ever buying or proactively choosing to have them. I’d just pass by them in the produce aisle and not give them a second thought. Danggg, I was missing out. I love the guys now, especially when they are roasted.

Fun Facts About Parsnips:

They are a root vegetable in the carrot family, but are slightly sweeter than carrots

They are high in fiber, Vitamin C, B Vitamins, manganese, magnesium potassium and calcium

Research has shown that they have anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-cancer properties

Do I need to remind you of the health benefits of turmeric? Turmeric also has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. There is also some ongoing research about turmeric affecting the brain and having a positive effect on neurochemical reactions.

  1. Yesss! WHY are parsnips so easily forgotten?! Every time I have them I remember how delicious they are – and it seems everyone else says this same thing – but then I never ever buy them. I made parsnip fries once and just used my spiralizer to make parsnip noodles over the holiday and they were so good. Definitely using this spice blend to make me some friessss asap.

  2. I’ve heard so many good things about turmeric, and I did eat some turmeric oats earlier last year. They were pretty good!

    And parsnips are THE BEST!

    Tater is so cute out in the snow.

  3. These look GOOD. And easy! I’ve never had parsnips before but I’m a big turmeric fan (although not so much the yellow staining that gets on everything haha) but I’ll add this to my list of recipes to try!

    1. It really does color your hands but at least you know you’re getting some good nutrition! Parsnips are similar to baked carrots but people describe them as sweeter!

  4. I SEE the salt and Parmesan on these crisp little pieces of perfection and I am in awe. I never eat parsnips but I am actually serious when I say I will be picking them up next time I swing by the grocery store so I can try this recipe out!

  5. These look awesome! I had no idea Parsnips were so awesome for you–I’ll have to give them a try. I’ve had parsnip chips before but never roasted or fresh.
    My go to seasonings are usually onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, chili powder, and sometimes paprika.

  6. Oh my these look so yummy! I’m totally making this recipe and love that is uses avocado oil. Turmeric is so amazing for your body, I’ve recommended it for everything from relieving cramps to helping with memory problems and even detoxing fluoride. But recipes that use it can be hard to find. Love it!

  7. Just when I thought Tater couldn’t get any cuter, here she is with snow on her nose! <3 <3 <3

    I haven't eaten parsnip in such a long time so I really need to try these! I've only ever used parsnip in vegetable soup!
