Baked Parsnip and Rosemary Fries

Indulge in these delicious baked parsnip and rosemary fries which have about half the fat of your average potato, and taste just as good!

Rather than deep-frying them in a bed of oil, bake them in your oven with some tasty herbs, or grill with some sliced sweet potato for extra flavour. This recipe should only take 15 minutes to prepare and about 2 minutes to eat!

Level Beginner


2.5 pounds parsnips (peeled, and cut into thin strips)

1 tbsp finely chopped rosemary

1 large garlic clove

3 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp ground cumin

Kosher salt

Freshly ground peper


  1. Preheat the over to 450ºF (220ºC) for fan-forced ovens or grills.
  2. Mix the sliced parsnip slices, rosemary, garlic, and olive into onto a tray lined with baking paper. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper to your liking.
  3. Roast for 10 minutes or until chips are golden-brown in colour. Remove them after 10 minutes, and allow them to cool on the tray. If the chips feel rather tender, they will still cook slightly on the tray.
  4. Sprinkle the cumin over, and season with additional salt, pepper, and rosemary.
