I`m back with a new recipe I got online. I`ve been finding a bunch of new recipes and ideas and testing them out so you may see a few more recipes like this soon.
This time, I found a recipe for parsnip `fries` that are made in the oven. I`ve been trying to incorporate more vegetables in my diet, and these are pretty healthy and super easy to make!
I saw a few similar recipes for making this, and this is just the basic method so you can play with it as you wish.
First, you need to prep your parsnips. If you have never had parsnips before, they are a root vegetable, somewhat similar is shape to a carrot, but can be much larger and thicker. Parsnips are also white, not orange. Most important thing to know is that parsnips, especially larger ones, can have a thick - woody core, that is not too tasty and needs to be removed. You also want to cut your parsnips into fairly equal size pieces, so they cook evenly. After you have peeled your parsnips, I find the best way to do this is to cut the parsnips cross wise separating the thinner end from the thicker end.
I then cut the thinner end lengthwise, and the thicker end into 4-6 lengthwise pieces as necessary. You can then trim away the woody core from the pieces on the thicker end.
Now all that left is too toss them with seasoning and some olive oil and roast in the oven at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown. You can also flip them once or twice in between to help caramelize on all sides.
I just used some salt, pepper and a little bit of cayenne. You can also use herbs, but they may burn in the high heat, so you need to be careful and not choose something too leafy or susceptible to burning.
It`s a delicious, slightly sweeter alternative to potatoes and better for you! And if you eat them with ketchup, you can barely tell them apart from french fries!
