Parsnips Anyone?

In an effort to put something different on our plates at dinner time, my husband decided to try to make some Parsnip Fries.  I had never had a parsnip before and I admit that I was a little skeptical to try them.  But alas, I was pleasantly surprised!  They are pretty darn yummy... so I thought I'd share our little recipe with you.  It's pretty loosey-goosey... you just kind of eyeball it.  Easy enough!

  • Preheat oven to 425*
  • 2-3 Parsnips, cut into shoe string fries (they are a little tough to cut... so don't cut yourself in the process!)
  • Put the parsnip fries into a gallon storage/zipper bag
  • Add enough olive oil to coat the fries
  • Shake in a bit of salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika and parmesan cheese (the amount you use is totally up to you!)
  • Seal the bag and give it some crazy shakes to coat all of the fries
  • Spread out on a greased baking sheet (not sure if you have to grease the pan, we just sprayed it with cooking spray just to be sure!)
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes!


**On a side note... please keep Cory's dad, Gene, in your prayers.  He goes in for a scan tomorrow... he's been having some issues and the doctors moved his scan up a week.  We are praying the cancer hasn't spread.**


  1. They look yummy! I'll have to try them sometime! :)
    Still praying for Gene!

  2. Hi Devon, this evening i made your parsnip recipe, it was lovely and tasty. Parsnips are my favourite vegtable, it will be my daughters birthday on sunday and she wants roast lamb and parsnips, so, i will roast them in honey, this is also a tasty way to enjoy them.Prayers for your father in law. Best wishes jackie x

  3. Thanks so much for that recipe. I have not eaten parsnips but we will buy some to try. I like sweet potato fries done like that. I will keep Cory's dad in my prayers.


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear what you have to say!
