Baked Parsnip French Fries
Don’t the let bad news about French fries get you down. Burgers and sandwiches don’t have to be served solo! Just pick parsnips over potatoes and bake rather than fry. These root vegetables look like white carrots and taste a bit like their orange cousins, too””only they’re slightly sweeter with a hint of nutty flavor. Toss slices with olive oil, nutritional yeast and a little garlic salt, then pop in the oven until crispy.
