Only if you ate with your eyes might parsnip fries taste like real potato-y french fries. Parsnips are more like carrots, they have the same sweet taste. You'll either love them, or hate them. I don't think it's possible to be indifferent towards parsnips! If you are looking to switch things up a little, this is an interesting lower carb recipe to try!
1lb of parsnips, peeled and cut into thin sticks (like french fries).*
1/2 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of garlic powder
pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 400F degrees.
Toss parsnips in a large bowl, coat with olive oil (about 1 tbsp) and spices.
Arrange parsnips in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 15 minutes, turn them, and continue baking for another 10-15 minutes.
When the parsnip fries look crispy and slightly browned, remove and enjoy!
* we like them thinner so they crisp better in the oven.
