So it turns out that parsnip fries are amazing!
Both of us were completely surprised by how unexpectedly delicious they are.
We had no idea.
We gobbled them up in seconds. No joke.
Here's how you make 'em...
Peel and cut a 2 lb bag of parsnips into wedges, toss with approximately 3 Tbs olive oil, 1 Tbs fresh rosemary and a clove of garlic (minced). Spread them out on a baking sheet and sprinkle with sea salt and fresh black pepper. Roast in a 450 degree oven for 10 minutes. Then turn the fries over, sprinkle with ground cumin, and roast another 10 minutes... until golden brown and crispy at the tips. Again sprinkle with sea salt, black pepper and more fresh rosemary.
