Oven baked parsnip, beetroot, celery and parsley root

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created October 06, 2012 at 6:21 PM

Is it paleo 'certified' to bake parsnip, beetroot, celery and parsley root in the oven at around 200 C/392 F. I'm thinking that the baking will raise the GI too much, but is this concern overdone?

Thanks again. That really enables a lot more dishes :)

Mmmhmmm...and now I'm thinking about the full bag of carrots in my fridge, definitely on the menu for dinner tonight (try them with butter or lard, ginger, and a bit of tarragon for treat). I don't know much about how the available nutrient profile shifts from raw to cooked in other roots, but in carrots the bio-available beta carotene goes waaaay up when cooked.

I assume the same goes for carrots?

Thanks. I have never experienced any problems directly related to this.

Thanks. I won't be eating a lot of it anyway. I would just like to have it as an option. As you say, its really good :)

There seems to be every indication that cooked roots were a likely a big part of our diets historically. Unless you can't handle any spikes in your blood sugar (which most people can) have at it, roasted roots are delish.

I just ate baked yam and boiled potatoes mushed together with ground beef and seasonings. I'm probably not a good person to answer this. I'm not terribly worried about GI if the food is good.

I would say go ahead, just coat them in bacon fat, salt and pepper, and roast them until well browned and fully cooked. There are very few things as delicious as this.

About the Glycemic Index, I wouldn't be concerned, just don't eat too much.
