Parsnip Fries


I haven’t experimented with parsnips until this week… WHAT was I waiting for?!  If you want a slightly lower-carb starch with a unique flavor, definitely give these babies a shot.  They look like giant white carrots and will probably near them in the grocery store.  These fries are super easy are, if not better, equally delicious as traditional potato fries!

Parsnip Fries

Prep time: 5 minutes   Cook time: 25-30 minutes   Total time: 35 minutes

Yield: 1-2 servings



1 large parsnip

2 tbsp coconut oil

Sea salt and black pepper, to taste



1.  Preheat oven to 425ºF.  Slice parsnip into French fry-shaped pieces while oven is heating.

2.  Mix together parsnip slices and coconut oil in a large bowl until well-coated.

3.  Spread fries out in a single layer on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper, if desired.  Bake for 15 minutes, stir fries around, and cook for another 10-15 minutes, depending on how crunchy you’d like them to be.  Serve and enjoy!
