Recipe: Oven-Baked Veggie Roots

This was the first time I tried parsnip, back in México I didn’t eat it (neither the celery root or parsley root). I don’t even remember seeing them at the grocery store! But here in Germany is quite common (or at least, I have noticed) to prepare these root vegetables during late winter. Today I tried them myself and I have to admit, they are delicious! They are easy to make, yes, it takes some time to wash peel and cut them all but no more than 15 mins 😉

I hope you try these vegetables, if you haven’t already, and let me know what you think of this recipe!

Eat Good, Feel Good! 🍏
