Serves: 4
  • 4 large parsnips
  • 4 sprigs of rosemary
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt + 2 tablespoons for blanching
  • Avocado oil for frying
  1. Bring a large pot full of water to a boil with 2 sprigs of rosemary and 2 tablespoons salt.
  2. Slice the parsnips to be 3 inches in length and ¼ inch in width. Transfer the parsnips into the pot to boil for 5 minutes.
  3. Strain parsnips and let sit for 5 minutes until no longer dripping with water.
  4. Pour a little oil into a medium-sized sauce pan over low heat.
  5. Add minced garlic and remaining rosemary and saute for about 2 minutes. Don’t let it brown. Strain and set garlic and rosemary aside.
  6. Pour enough oil into the pan to fry the parsnips. About ¼ an inch of oil in depth. Heat on medium.
  7. Fry parsnips for about 3-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Transfer to a paper towel to drain excess oil.
  8. In a large mixing bowl, toss fries with garlic, rosemary, and desired amount of salt.
