Feeling like fried food but really not all the ick that goes with it?  I was paging through the new Bon Appetit` issue and they had parsnip fries.  I did not have a lot of parsnips (nor any fresh rosemary), so I improvised.  They turned out yummy – the parsnips were crispy but the carrots not so much.  Still tasted great though!


  • 4 parsnips, peeled and sliced into about 1/4 inch wide
  • 3 carrots, peeled and sliced into about 1/4 inch wide
  • 2 TB extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp of your favorite grill seasoning
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste

Preheat over to 400 degrees F.  Heat a pot salted water to boil and blanch the cut veggies for 2 minutes.  Drain and dump in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking.

Pat the veggies dry once they are cooled.  In a bowl, toss the veggies with the oil, grill seasoning and pepper. Spread out in a single layer on a baking sheet.

Bake for about 15 minutes then toss them around on the pan so the other sides can get crispy. Return to the oven for 10 to 15 minutes more.  Enjoy!
