Parsnip Fries

Happy Friday lovies!  Look at what a snow day can do?  I’m all caught up on blogging and it feels great.  It also felt great to cook up a new little recipe while I was stuck inside this week.

It’s difficult sometimes to come up with new dishes because someone in the house is a little picky and we pretty much just really love our meat in the simplest form.  That’s why sometimes to be inventive it has to be with smaller side dishes or snacks…which brought me to try this delicious spin on my favorite food.

French fries are my weakness.  I had heard of people making veggie fries before.  So when I was craving some nice winter, root vegetables Parsnips immediately came to mind.

These were absolutely delicious.  Sweet and savory, and the perfect compliment to a nice juicy steak.

Ingredients

  • 4 to 5 parsnips peeled and sliced into fry shape
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • himalayan pink salt
  • pepper
  • sage
  • cumin

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.  While the oven is pre-heating, peel and slice your parsnips.  Add them to a mixing bowl and drizzle your olive oil over.  Sprinkle your spices to your liking and mix, trying to cover all of the pieces.

Place evenly on a baking dish in one layer.  Cook for about 25 minutes (possibly longer if your cuts are thicker) flipping half way through.

And that’s all folks!  Enjoy!  What are your favorite ‘fries’?
