“Looking through my veggie bin a saw a sweet potato & a couple of parsnips and I was reminded of two good recipes that I tried recently -Roasted Parsnips & Carrots by Mean Chef and Sweet Potato Rosti by KJ so I thought why not try Parsnips and sweet potato - This recipe is the result. I like to bake the veggies on a baking stone covered with parchment but a cookie sheet will do”
