  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Slice carrots and parsnips into sticks about 4 inches long and 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Arrange vegetables in a single layer on a shallow rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and toss to coat evenly. Season with salt and pepper, then sprinkle with thyme leaves. Roast the vegetables, turning them once or twice during cooking until the edges and tips begin to brown and vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes.
