Chili-Lime Roasted Carrots and Parsnips

My Clean eating culinary/Nutrition class is going well! I am proud that I knew a fair amount of the lessons from studying on the subject for a while, but also excited that I am learning a great deal of new material ! This week, part of our lessons included a section and a demonstration of the proper use and maintenance of chef knives. After sharing this information with the hubby, I think he may have thought I was an instant pro.. He brought home some parsnips for me to cut up and cook for him..( I also think that he just wanted to try the parsnips) Well, I am not an expert with the new technique as of yet, but I can weld a knife pretty well in my own way. I cut up the   and some carrots that I had for practice . We were having Tamale pie for dinner so I wanted something to go along with that flavor, this is my results.. I hope that you enjoy!
