Rosemary Garlic Parsnip Fries

Herbed Parsnip Fries

Parsnips are a starchy vegetable, shaped much like carrots but are white in color similar to a potato. They make a delicious ‘spin’ on the original potato french fry, baked in coconut oil with fresh herbs and spices. When cooking or baking, coconut oil is the best option as it is very stable. Note that olive oil is not stable under high temperatures and therefore is not a suitable choice for cooking or baking. This recipe is family friendly and kid approved!


  • Parsnips (As many as you like)
  • 2-3 tbsp. Coconut Oil
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic or Garlic Powder (1-2 tbsp.)
  • 2-3 tbsp. Rosemary
  • 1 – 2 tsp. Sea Salt or Himalayan Pink Salt


1. Slice your parsnips into wedges (usually about 6 parsnips should do the trick for 2 people but you can make more or less depending on how many you’re serving.)

2. Toss in 2-3 tbsp. coconut oil, then add in your fresh herbs like rosemary, chopped garlic, and some sea salt. Or you can use dried herbs already pre-mixed but be careful to check if they contain anti-caking agents or sugar (yes, we’re finding sugar in a lot of pre-made seasonings these days.)

3. Bake your parsnip fries at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes and enjoy!
