Parsnips French Fries

IMG_3421

I once dated a guy who told me my smile was his kryptonite, you can guess what kind of guy he ended up being… My kryptonite?  French fries!  I love them and hate how horribly bad for me they are, but put a pile i front of me and even this health nut can’t help herself.  When I find myself craving some crispy, fired, carbohydate loaded indulgence, I always turn to a more guiltfree option, parsnip fries! With a similar crunch, these yummy strips become slightly sweet  and carmelized and are oh so craveworthy once baked.

*Incase you aren’t sure what a parsnip is, it looks like a white carrot*
