Foodie Friday: Parsnip Truffle Fries


Parsnip Truffle Fries {Gluten Free, Vegan}

Welcome back to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Emily from Whatever Floats Your Oats, Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl, Farrah from Fairyburger and Cassandra from Powered by BLING to create awesome healthy recipes each week!  Also, make sure you hop around to check out all the amazing recipes in this link up and feel free to add your recipes as well! 

This week our theme is “Pinterest Curiosities” or recipes that we’ve been wanting to make but haven’t had a chance to yet.  With all of the awesome recipes I come across, this was hard to choose.  I seriously have a board on Pinterest called “Deliciousness to Try” with 445 pins.  That’s four hundred and forty-five recipes that I’ve been dying to try but just haven’t had the time yet.

Follow The Fit Foodie Mama ‘s board Deliciousness to Try on Pinterest.

As much as I wanted to make one of the recipes that I pinned a year ago…I picked one of my most recent pins because I was craving some fries.

Seriously, how good do these look?



This recipe for healthified fries comes from Paleo Grubs and it is amazing. I already love truffle salt and use it on everything so I knew I would love this recipe. Though this recipe calls for truffle oil, I used the truffle salt I had on hand instead. Just had to swap around the ingredients but still the same amazing flavor!

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Slice parsnips into thin fries.  Toss in a bowl with olive oil, truffle salt and pepper. 
  2. Spread out in an even layer on a baking sheet or on top of a wire rack on a baking sheet (then there is no need to turn over).  Bake for 20 mins.
  3. If using baking sheet, turn fries over and place back in the oven at 450 degrees. Bake for another 5-10 minutes or until crispy. 
  4. Remove fries from oven and place in a large bowl.  Toss with fresh parsley and more sea salt, if desired. 
  5. Serve & Enjoy! :)

I am not even sure what a parsnip is...it's like a carrot? Or truffle salt #worstfoodbloggerever :) SHARE SOME WITH ME

    Haha yeah it's a root vegetable, kinda like a carrot. Truffle salt is made of sea salt blended with black truffle mushrooms- it's very decadent tasting :) I will of course share some with you!

Well, you had me at truffle salt. I almost think I'd like the parsnips more than potatoes. I have to give this a try.

Sounds fantastic, but I'm gonna switch to a rutabaga--I"m not as big on parsnips. With your permission of course :D

    I bought the one that is pictured off of Amazon. It isn't cheap but you don't need a lot of it to give the dish flavor so it lasts a while :)

I've only had parsnips for the first time recently in a stew and they were great. These fries look amazing. We're stuck on sweet potato fries right now so this might be a good way to mix it up a bit!

I feel ya on the pinterest boards. I have one called "Delicious Noms" and another called "Healthy Recipes," and I like to tell myself that SOMEDAY, I'll get through it (I'm hilarious).

That being said, those fries look amazing, and now I'm craving fries too! I'm not sure I've ever actually even had parsnips before, but they look so much like "the real thing!" :O

Those look so good! I like to chop up parsnips and roast them with olive oil and top them with hemp hearts, but eating them in french fry form seems way more fun ;)
