You may have noticed I’ve been on a burger kick lately. They’re just so EASY and quick, a godsend on a weeknight. So I figured, eventually, that I should put together some kind of burger-propriate (totally a word) side. I came up with these super easy parsnip shoestring fires, made all the more awesome because the slightly caramelized natural sweetness of the parsnip was paired with a nice little kick from a Cajun spice blend. You’re welcome. Go make these! They’re addictive enough that the two of us polished off 8 parsnips-worth with no shame!
- Preheat oven to 425F.
- Peel the parsnips and trim the ends. Cut in half, then into quarters. Cut the quarters lengthwise into thin shoestring-style fries.
- Add the parsnips to a large bowl with the arrowroot starch, seasoning and oil. Toss to coat evenly.
- Line a baking sheet and spread the parsnips out evenly.
- Bake for 20 minutes, then flip the parsnips over. Continue to bake for another 10 minutes, or until the edges have begun to brown / caramelize.
