  • 1 pound parsnips peeled
  • 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chives fresh, minced
  • 2 tablespoons parsley fresh, minced


  • Preheat oven to 425F. Cut the parsnips into 1/4-inch thick matchsticks. Place in a large mixing bowl and toss with 2 teaspoons olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread the parsnips in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet and roast 20 minutes.
  • Flip the fries and increase the heat to 450F. Roast an additional 5 minutes, keeping an eye on the fries to make sure they don’t burn. (Or, like me, let the ends get extra toasty!)
  • Put the fries back in the mixing bowl and toss with the remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil, chives, and parsley. Taste and add more salt, if necessary. Devour immediately.
