• 1 pound parsnips
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Pesto sauce for dipping (optional)



  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Wash and cut the ends off of your parsnips. Cut them into strips to make fries. Place them on a lined baking sheet and drizzle the oil over them. Season with the paprika, salt and pepper and toss to combine.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, until soft on the inside and slightly crispy on the outside.
  • Serve with pesto or your favorite dipping sauce.
