  • BBQ Flavoured Parsnip Fries!

    I just made these. And they're so fucking good, I could eat the whole pan. Then wifey would come home, and be all like "WTF! I cut those up for you!!!" (she's my sous chef) and I'd be all like:

    "Uh...

    ....it was....uhhhh...

    THE CATS!!!!!!"

    Here's what you need:

    A pre-heated oven to 400 degrees
    Parchment paper lined baking sheet (this makes clean up SO MUCH EASIER!)
    2 parsnips, peeled, cut up into fry like shapes
    Your fat of your choice. About a tablespoon, maybe more, melted. I used wild boar lard that I just bought.
    Turmeric
    Salt
    Pepper
    Paprika
    Powdered garlic

    Drizzle said fat all over your parsnip fries. Toss 'em with your hands to coat. Liberally sprinkle salt, pepper, turmeric, paprika, garlic. I eyeball all this. Toss to coat again. You should have a very lovely bright yellow and red mix of parsnips, my friend!

    Toss these in your very hot oven. Check 'em after 20 minutes. At this point, I added a bit more lard and stirred/tossed the fries around.

    Pop 'em back in for another 15-20 minutes.

    Take 'em out. Let 'em cool.

    These honestly taste like BBQ potato chips: slightly sweet, smokey, and fucking DELISH!!!

        Let me know how you like 'em. My wife, as she puts it: "ate the fuck out of them"! lol They're the best fresh out of the oven, but hers were cold, and she loved them!

                        Can you give me an approximate seasonings ratio? I've never made anything BBQ flavored before. I'm new to primal eating and I always just poured it out of a bottle before.

                          Thanks - I totally forgot to go today, so I'll hit them up on Thursday when I'm back in the office.

                            I'd say 2 each tablespoons of turmeric, paprika. About 1.5 to 2 tablespoons garlic powder.

                            Salt and pepper to taste.

                            I eyeball EVERYTHING in the kitchen. Those are very approx.

                              Thank you for this . I've recently discovered parsnip fries, and feel "cheated" that I've missed out on the awesomeness for so long. My childhood memory of parsnips were something in a stew that was either pushed aside or hastily gulped down with a mouthful of other stuff.

                              Your seasoning mix puts them over the top. Made them tonight and had trouble leaving any for hubby. I may have to do it again tomorrow!!
