Parsnip Fries


Tonight, we were making burgers for dinner, and the only thing I could think of to go along with them was fries. When I found this recipe on Daily Unadventures in Cooking, I decided that this was the fry recipe for me. I remember when I was young, my grandma used to cut up parsnips and fry them in butter. I know I liked them, but it was so long ago. It was definitely about time to try parsnips again. The coating for these fries was so incredibly easy and delicious. I think I may have cooked my fries too long, because they did get a little burnt around the edges. I am pretty sure it is because I cut them to small. I will definitely try these again, but next time I will keep an eye on them in the oven so that they don't burn!


2 Parsnips
1 tablespoon Almond Butter
2 tablespoons Chunky Peanut Butter
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
1/2 teaspoon Salt

In a bowl, whisk together the almond and peanut butters, olive oil, and salt. Peel the parsnips and cut them into 4-6 inch sticks. Place the parsnip sticks into the bowl and, using your hands, toss them to coat each fry evenly. Cover a cooking sheet with parchment paper or tin foil sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Line up the fries on the pan and bake at 400 degrees for 35-50 minutes. (I would start to check on them after about 35 to be sure that they don't burn!)
