How to Cook Parsnips in an Air Fryer

Roasted parsnips make a great side for many types of food. Especially at this time of year, I love roasted root vegetables, some of my favorites are air fryer roasted carrots, air fryer sweet potato wedges and air fryer roast potatoes.

How to Prepare Parsnips for Roasting

Parsnips are easy to prepare for roasting. Peeling is optional. I know some people prefer to peel root vegetables, but I usually just give them a good scrub.

Trim the tops and bottoms, then you will need to cut them into 2-3 in long pieces. I usually get 6-7 pieces from each parsnip.

When you put them in the air fryer they need a bit of oil and a quick sprinkle of salt. You can add other seasoning too if you like, or read on for my favorite way to flavor roast parsnips.

Honey Roasted Parsnips in the Air Fryer

This sounds (and tastes) quite gourmet, but it actually the easiest recipe!

All you need to do is oil and salt the parsnips as above, and then drizzle a little honey over them before air frying.

As the parsnips roast in the air fryer the honey melts down and forms a beautiful sweet brown glaze.

Honey Roasted Parsnips in the air fryer are so delicious you will probably never cook them any other way again.
