Roasted Parsnip Fries

  • 2-3 large parsnips
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
  • fresh parsley, optional

Slice parsnips in even slices and toss in a small bowl with avocado oil. Add seasonings.

Transfer parsnips to the baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes. Take the baking sheet out and carefully flip parsnips. Sprinkle with more parmesan cheese, if desired. Return to oven and bake for 15 more minutes, until parsnips are evenly browned. Top with fresh parsley, if desired.
