Meanwhile, in skillet, heat oil over medium heat; fry garlic, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add vinegar, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

Add carrots and parsnips; cook, stirring, until hot, about 1 minute. Toss with parsley. Makes 8 servings.
