Parsnip Fries

Have you ever eaten a parsnip?  As far as I’m aware, this root vegetable is not very popular.  In fact, I didn’t even know they existed until a couple years ago.  I do not like them raw…but baked?…now that’s a whole new story.


I think it is pretty safe to say that “fries” are a popular food these days.  Whether it be regular old white potato fries, sweet potato fries, squash or carrot fries, they are a staple in many people’s diets (mine included).  In my opinion, parsnip fries should be a part of that staple list because not only are they delicious, but they’re healthy too.


If you haven’t had parsnips before, then this recipe is the perfect way to introduce yourself.  These Parsnip Fries are Paleo, Vegan and only 4 ingredients.  They are a great alternative to sweet potato (or any other) fries.
