Southwestern Parsnip Fries

This was my first time eating parsnip fries, and I’m officially a convert. I love these suckers!

In all honestly, I’m a pretty recent convert to parsnips in general.  The first time I ever made them was while following a recipe that called for them. I had heard of them of course, but never tasted them. Now I’m all “Why didn’t anyone tell me to try these sooner!?” Cause they’re really good! I love them grilled (in the summer) or roasted (in the winter).

Sometimes I forget and call them turnips though, and then people think I’m weird. Totally true story.

In the winter, when I’m doing my “food prep Sundays”, I love tossing a bunch of chopped up parsnips, beets and sweet potatoes in a little oil and roasting them, then I’ll eat them for lunch all week. Yums.

This time around, I decided to branch out a little bit.

These fries were just perfect. You know how parsnips have that tangy flavor? These retain that, even when baked, and it goes perfectly with the taco seasoning.

    I have yet to try parsnips. Making them as fries would be a good way to start. These look so yummy! :)
