Parsnip Fries

Every parent needs this recipe! These spiced "fries" are oven-roasted and delicious! If your kids don't like spicy, cut down on the amount of chili powder. These are definitely going to be a weekly vegetable at our house!


* 1 1/2 pounds parsnips, about 4 large ones
* 2 tablespoons olive oil
* 2 teaspoons chili powder
* 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
* 1 teaspoon kosher salt
* 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Peel the parsnips and slice off the root. Cut into thick fries as evenly as possible. In a large bowl, mix together the olive oil, chili powder, garam masala, salt, and pepper. Add the parsnips and toss to coat. Place on a parchment or foil-lined baking sheet.

Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, tossing the chips halfway through to ensure even cooking. Chips are done when they're lightly caramelized and a knife inserted in the chips goes in and comes out without much resistance.
