Said the Parsnip to the Fry...


Chef Morrow's in the house, flipping over Lizzy's Review this week! I'll be whipping up magic in the kitchen with my trusty cameraman, Fairday, and we plan to enchant your taste buds with an appetizing dish. I appreciate creative vision when it comes to putting together a delicious, healthy meal, and the The Recipe Hacker by Diana Keuilian has delightful recipes, presented with style.
Fairday and I enjoyed picking out a recipe to review, and we chose Baked Parsnip Fries. These treats are not only tasty, but they are good for you! Dipped in natural ketchup or something different, like Fairday's choice of feta dill salad dressing, parsnip fries are perfect served with a sandwich or as a fun snack during a movie. I made a larger portion, so the whole family was able to get their fill of these fabulous fries.

Stop by Friday for a chat with Diana Keuilian. We're certain to uncover a few more culinary secrets, and find out the story behind the story.

Bon appetit!

Here’s what you need for Baked Parsnips:
  • 2 large parsnips
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Dash of sea salt and black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon sweet paprika


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

Peel the parsnips and trim the ends. Cut each parsnip in half, horizontally, then make 2 cuts in each direction to create 9 sticks. In a large bowl toss the parsnip fries with the rosemary, garlic, olive oil, sea salt, pepper and sweet paprika.


Spread the fries over your prepared baking sheet. Roast for 10 minutes, flip, and then roast for another 10-15 minutes, until browned and crispy.

Serve with natural ketchup and enjoy!

  6. These look DELISH! I've done something like this with sweet potatoes but never thought of parsnips (and parsnips is such more of a fun word to say!). I wonder if I could convert my son to these. Will certainly try. :)

    1. Donna- They are delish! I bet you will be able to convert your son to these- they are really so good and my whole family loved them. If you make them I would love to hear how your son liked them. :) ~Mr. Morrow

  7. Mm. Those do look good. I tried Parmesan zucchini not too long ago, and that was definitely worth doing too. Ah, healthy alternatives...

    1. Crystal- It is such fun to try healthy alternatives, especially when the recipe is just as easy as the unhealthy version! Parmesan zucchini sounds quite tasty! :) ~Mr. Morrow

  9. I will make these. I am going grain-free and making the family go with me (even though, they think they might die from it). HA. I am making zucchini spaghetti noodles and cauliflower rice. So this would be right down my alley. LOVE the photos. :-)

    1. Robyn- It sounds like you are finding some wonderful alternatives to other foods your family likes. Definitely make the parsnip fries! Cauliflower rice sounds good. I have had cauliflower potatoes before and after fussing with the recipe a bit they were a big hit. Zucchini spaghetti is such a great alternative to pasta. So glad you enjoyed the photos. :) ~Mr. Morrow

  11. I've seen something like this on pinterest actually but with potatoes. I have no idea what parsnips are but they look so yummy! I actually think I will make these. I was just today trying to figure out how to add some healthy food I would enjoy into my diet.

    1. Adriana- Parsnips are a root vegetable, which is closely related to carrots and parsley. This would be a great healthy treat to add into your diet. :) ~Mr. Morrow

  14. I had no idea what parsnip looked like (somehow I thought it was a garnish thing??), but these look tasty!!

    1. Meradeth- There are so many different recipes for parsnips. I liked this one because you still feel like you are eating a fry, but you are eating a vegetable and they taste so much better than fries. :) ~Mr. Morrow

  15. Oh wow, I have never made homemade French fries before! I think it is because we have a chip shop so close to home. But tomorrow my friends are all coming over, so if I make these today and they are successful, we might have something nice to snack on!

    1. Olivia- I guess living close to a chip shop would definitely make it easy to go out for fries. If you had a chance to make these I hope you enjoyed them! They are definitely a healthier alternative to regular fries. :) ~Mr. Morrow
