Directions: 1. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). 2. Place the parsnips and carrots into a mixing bowl and toss with the olive oil. Sprinkle in the garlic, honey, salt, and black pepper to taste. Toss until evenly coated, and spread out evenly onto a baking sheet. (Reserve bowl to toss vegetables in when done) 3. Bake in the preheated oven until the parsnips and carrots are tender, about 30 minutes. Scrape into a mixing bowl, and toss with the chopped herbs and butter.
Place 2 in. of water in a large saucepan; add carrots. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Add parsnips; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
