Parsnip French Fries is one of my favorite side dishes and a staple in my family! I remember when I first made parsnip fries many of my family members were pessimistic. They said things like, “What are parsnips?”, “I’m not going to like that!”, “There is no way they will taste like french fries!”. And guess what?! I proved them ALL wrong! Everyone was shocked at how amazingly similar to french fries they actually tasted. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family and I do!

I usually just eyeball this so feel free to add more or less of the seasonings.

These are great with any seasonings! However, this is my favorite combo!
