I have always been very open and honest about my love for French fries. Regular, curly, seasoned, sweet potato…I don’t discriminate!
However, regular fries are really so bad for us. 🙁 All that unhealthy fat and all of those calories are hard to justify eating very often. Not to mention having a belly full of greasy fries never feels too awesome.
In the past I have baked sweet potato fries, which are amazing, and I’ve even baked carrot fries, which are also quite good. But NOTHING has come as close to tasting like real, authentic fries than these Baked Parsnip Fries.
Nothing even comes close to touching these amazing fries. These are THE BEST EVER! Please, please, please try this recipe (if you are a fry lover) and let me know what you think. Enjoy 🙂
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Peel the parsnips and trim the ends. Cut each parsnip in half, horizontally, then make 2 cuts in each direction to create 9 sticks. In a large bowl toss the parsnip fries with the rosemary, garlic, olive oil, sea salt, pepper and sweet paprika.
- Spread the fries over your prepared baking sheet. Roast for 10 minutes, flip, and then roast for another 10-15 minutes, until browned and crispy. Serve with natural ketchup and enjoy!
