🛒 What You Need To Roast Parsnips In An Air Fryer

parsnips, honey and oil

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.

👩‍🍳 How To Air Fry Parsnips

Step 1

Start by topping and tailing the parsnips. Optionally peel them. Cut the parsnips in half, and depending on their size, slice them again. Try to cut them into similar sizes so that they are cooked evenly and ready at the same time.

Step 2

Put the chopped parsnips in the air fryer basket.

Step 3

Toss them in a little oil and season with salt and pepper according to taste or any other seasoning you choose.

If you are cooking honey roasted parsnips, brush the honey over them now.

Step 4

Set the temperature to 200°C/400°F, and set the timer to 15 minutes. Shake the parsnips halfway through to ensure they cook evenly.

The parsnips are ready when soft in the centre and golden crispy brown on the outside. Cook for longer if needed.
