3 tablespoons olive oil

1 1/2 pounds parsnips, peeled and quartered lengthwise 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

2 pounds thin carrots, peeled and halved lengthwise 

2 tablespoons unsalted butter 

1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the parsnips and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook, turning occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes. Then add the carrots and continue cooking until the vegetables begin to brown and soften slightly, another 10 minutes.
