I can safely say I’ve never met a fry I didn’t like. That’s actually probably a lie. I was never a fan of those under-cooked wedge fries they served at my Elementary school ????. As an adult though, my tastes have changed and I’ve been on the hunt for the healthiest fry in the world . Enter parsnip fries!
What are Parsnips?
Parsnips are actually a root vegetable (so these are basically like a salad in fry form right?). You can find parsnips looking like a super pale carrot in the produce section of your local grocery store. They have a little bit of a nutty flavor to them. Paired with olive oil and sea salt, they're down right delectable!
