Sides Made Easy: Herb Roasted Parsnip Fries

frie 1

Parsnips have seriously become one of my favorite new vegetables. I love the unique “spicy” flavor it has. When they are roasted with herbs  the flavors all really become cohesive and complement each other. Roasted parsnip fries are one of my go-to quick side dishes. They are tasty, nutritious and fun to eat like French fries. They get a nice crispiness on the outside and still a little soft on the inside. It pairs great with burgers, chicken tenders, pulled pork etc.

*Depending on the size of your parsnips you may not need as much seasoning as I list in the recipe. Feel free to add according to personal taste.
