- 15 oz parsnips, halved lengthwise, or sliced depending on shape
1 cup olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 oz ginger, sliced
- 2 tsp thyme, dried
- 2 bay leaves, dried
2 tsp salt
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 tbs honey
2 tbs olive oil
- 1 garlic clove
- 2 tbs pineapple, 1/4 inch diced
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
For the sauce
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place the parsnips with the garlic, ginger, thyme and bay leaves on a baking dish. Season with salt. Drizzle with olive oil and bake for 30 minutes. Flip over and roast for 20 more minutes.
In the meantime, make the sauce: In a sauce pan combine the vinegar with the water, honey, olive oil, garlic, pineapple chunks, salt and pepper. Bring to a gentle simmer for 10 minutes.
Heat a heavy bottomed pan and sauté the parsnips in their own juice from the baking pan, for 3-5 minutes.
Serve hot drizzled with the pickled sauce.
