I am feeling really proud of myself this past week. I went to the gym 4 days and really kept up. I’m getting to the point where I’m not horrifically sore every day, but I still feel like I am terrible at it. Oh Crossfit, you never cease to humble me.
So this recipe is easy and delicious. Parsnips are like a cross between a carrot and a potato. They’re sweet and have a rooty texture. You can easily omit the honey from this recipe if you don’t use sugars, but I think it accentuates the vegetable, so we use it. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!
Baked Parsnip Fries
1 lb Parsnips
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Walnut Oil
½ tsp Honey
2 Garlic cloves
Sea Salt and Pepper (to taste, about ¼ tsp each)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or not, but I think these come out better if you use parchment paper).
Peel the parsnips and cut into fries about ¼” thick. Toss with all other ingredients, then spread out on a baking sheet.
Bake the parsnip fries for 25-35 minutes, turning once or twice, or until they are tender.
