What You Need To Cook Parsnips In An Air Fryer

ingredients for air fryer parsnips

Parsnips – Look for parsnips that are small to medium in size and have smooth, creamy skin. Avoid parsnips that are large, woody, or have blemishes.

Oil – This will help to ensure that your parsnips get nice and crispy on the outside. You only need to brush a little oil over the parsnips.

Honey – Optionally drizzle some honey over the parsnips if you enjoy honey-roasted parsnips.

Salt and Pepper – To taste.

Air Fryer – You can use any air fryer; the number of parsnips you can cook will depend on the size of your air fryer basket.
