All you need to make these fries are the following:
How to Make Crispy Garlic Parsnip Fries
To make these fries, first preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Make sure that one of your oven racks is positioned on the bottom notch – as, these fries are cooked on the bottom oven rack.
Prep the Parsnips
Then, prepare the parsnips by rinsing them and peeling their outer skin. Cut off the tops of the parsnips. Then, cut the parsnips into fry shapes.
Season the Parsnips
Place the parsnip fries in a mixing bowl and coat with avocado oil. Sprinkle with garlic powder and salt, then mix with either a pair of tongs or your hands until well coated.
Bake the Parsnips
Next, spread the seasoned parsnip fries out on a baking sheet. Make sure none of them are overlapping.
Place them on the bottom rack of your oven and bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Flip, and cook another 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Once they are done cooking, remove from the oven and eat!
