More than a side dish, these parsnip chips are great for snacking too whenever you crave something yummy, but would rather stay away from junk food. Not that I call the the almighty potato chips junk. Far from me that thought!

For me, the potato fries are THE ultimate food, and if I have to choose one dish I would have before I die, that would definitely be chips.

And myhomemade baked fries are a fine example that you can get perfect fries at home too, no need to go for a take-away. But, do you know what? These parsnip fries are nearly as good as the potato fries.

I say nearly, because, well, they are not potatoes. But other than that, they are perfect! The naturally sweet taste goes wonderfully well with the paprika and garlic mixture, plus the parmesan comes to give the final nice kick to them.

Expert tips

There are a few tips if you want to get perfectly baked parsnip fries. I know it's a boring task, but it's important to have them in one single layer on the baking tray and, ideally, at least half a centimetre between them.

That will ensure an even bake. You can't get the same perfect crispiness as you get with the fried potato chips, for example, but they are absolutely fantastic anyway.

The tray has to be greased before arranging the fries, and I promise you, they will not stick at all. They also have to be tossed in oil and spices beforehand.

You only need about 25 minutes to put these parsnip fries to the table. Just make sure that the oven is well pre-heated before you pop them in. They only need 17-18 minutes in the oven, since they are sliced finely. Do keep an eye on them not to burn them!

One thing I would recommend anyone to have in their kitchen is a nice vegetable peeler. It might be ridiculously cheap, I think I bought mine for £0.50 or so, but I couldn't possibly live without it in my kitchen.

These parsnip fries can be made vegan by omitting the parmesan at the end. You could perhaps replace them with a vegan cheese, or have them with a vegan dip.
