How often have you bypassed the crisp, creamy-white parsnips, grabbing carrots or sweet potatoes, instead? This slightly sweet root vegetable, reminiscent of a carrot in shape and flavor, begs to be baked tender with a buttery spice blend.


  • 2 pounds parsnips, trimmed, diced (about 5 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon clove
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt or more to taste


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss until well coated.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and spray a square 9 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Pour parsnips into baking dish.
  4. Bake, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender and lightly browned, about 50 minutes.
  5. Serve warm with dollops of plain yogurt and a garnish of chopped fresh chives.
