Meet your new favorite side dish! I often forget about parsnips and how much I enjoy them. These crispy baked parsnip fries are easy to make and so satisfying! Parsnips look like white carrots, but they have a nuttier flavor and in my opinion are WAY TASTIER.
Crispy Parsnip Fries
- 3-4 large parsnips cut into "fries"
- 1 1/2 tbsp avocado oil or melted ghee
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp cumin
- pinch of black pepper
Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set a rack in the middle of the oven.
Wash and scrub your parsnips and cut into "fries".
In a large mixing bowl, combine your parsnips with the avocado oil and spices and toss until the parsnips are evenly coated.
Arrange parsnips on the baking sheet, spread out so no two are touching.
Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, until bottoms are beginning to brown.
Remove from oven and flip using a spatula. Continue to bake another 10-15 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
Serve with as a side dish, appetizer or snack!
