Baked Parsnip Fries
Serves: 6 or just you and me
  • 3 pounds of parsnips, peeled
  • 3 Tablespoons unrefined olive oil
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with unbleached parchment paper.
  2. Cut the parsnips in half crosswise.  Then cut each half into ½ inch sticks.
  3. Place parsnips on the prepared baking sheets and drizzle with olive oil.  Toss to coat with your hands and spread the pieces in one layer.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste.  (I like ½ teaspoon salt per pan.)  Bake until tender and golden, about 35-45 minutes, tossing once about halfway through roasting.  Sprinkle with additional salt, if desired (I always do.)
