Air Fryer Parsnips are a delicious and healthy alternative to french fries or an easy side dish! These honey-roasted parsnips are cooked in the air fryer and come out perfectly crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, with minimal oil. They are naturally sweet like a carrot, making them the perfect side dish for any meal.
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
1 pinch salt
1 pinch black pepper
Peel the parsnips and cut into sticks.
Add the parsnips to a bowl with the oil, honey, salt and pepper, then toss to coat.
Pour the parsnips into the air fryer basket and cook at 400F/200C for 12 minutes, tossing often, or until golden.
Remove with tongs and serve hot.
When purchasing parsnips at the grocery store, try to find ones that are all similar in size for even cooking.
Additionally, you’ll want to make sure your parsnip sticks are roughly the same size to make sure they all cook at the same time.
Place the parsnips in a single layer in the bottom of the air fryer basket to prevent them from steaming and becoming soggy.
The length of time it takes to cook depends on how hot your air fryer gets and how big the pieces are. Check at the 8-10 minute mark and adjust the cooking time for doneness.
