You will need:
3 good sized parsnips
spices/herbs of your choice--but for a good first time combo, I recommend garlic salt (lovely as fresh garlic is this distributes the flavor better), rosemary, thyme, and a hint of black pepper or lemon pepper.
This recipe is easy as pie.
1) PREHEAT THE OVEN TO 450 Farenheit. Scrub off your parsnips, chop off the dried parts of the end and tips, and admire them.
2) Cut them up into nice skinny fry sized pieces. The easiest way to do this is to slice them lengthwise, and then slice those sections even smaller lengthwise. When you are done, spread them evenly on an edged tray, so they look pale and unappealing, like this:
3) Next, coat the fries in about two tablespoons of olive oil, tossing them to make sure it is evenly distributed. Add spices to taste, and repeat the tossing. They might look marginally more appealing,
