If you’re looking for a healthy fry alternatieve, these Vegan Baked Parsnip Fries are a must make. Just 5 minutes to prepare and 25 minutes in the oven and dinner is served. What I love about these easy Parsnip Fries is that they’re baked with just a little extra virgin olive oil so super healthy and not heavy like fried chips.
What different flavourings can you use to make these Baked Parsnip Fries?
I roasted these parsnip fries with fresh rosemary, thyme, salt, lemon zest and nutritional yeast for a dairy free cheesy taste. You can also add a little paprika for a nice kick too.
Indian – replace the thyme, rosemary and nutritional yeast with 1 – 2 tsp curry powder or cumin / coriander and turmeric mix.
Mediterranean -replace the thyme and rosemary with 1 tbsp of dried Italian herbs and toss through some chopped olives and sundried tomatoes at the end. Option to roast the olives if you prefer so they go all crispy. Don’t roast the tomatoes though, they will just dry up.
How to serve these Baked Parsnip Fries
Serve these roasted parsnips with your favourite protein (baked tofu or salmon, roast chicken or turkey if you’re not vegan) and a nice salad or some steamed vegetables. Since it’s the festive season, why not try these for Christmas in place of your traditional roasted parsnips for a healthy Christmas side dish?
I hope you enjoy them!
