8-10 small or baby beets, unpeeled and scrubbed
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut the parsnips lengthwise in half, then into lengthwise quarters. Remove and discard the fibrous core. Cut the parsnips into 1/2" sticks.
In a large bowl, toss the parsnip sticks with the oil and salt. Put them onto the baking sheet, spreading in a single layer.
Bake for 10 minutes. Turn the sticks over and bake for another 10 minutes or until crispy on the outside and soft inside.
Remove the pan to a wire rack and let cool slightly
