Sweet Savory Fries!

 These fries will change your life!

You will no longer want those icky McDonald's fries or any other fries for that matter...trust me on this.

While baking dinner (salmon to be exact) I remembered we had some sweet potatoes in the fridge from Christmas break. Although we love our sweet potatoes it was time to cut 'em, cook 'em, and eat 'em!!

I found this recipe online Here

Nut Butter Crusted Parsnip Fries

Adapted from Diet, Dessert, & Dogs.
  • 3 medium parsnips (or 2 medium sweet potatoes), peeled and cut into thin fry-like strips
  • 1 Tbsp almond butter
  • 2 Tbsp chunky peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp fine grain sea salt
Directions: Preheat oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean-up. Peel and cut parsnips into fry-like strips. In a medium size bowl, mix together the nut butters, olive oil, and salt. Take parsnips and toss in bowl with your hands until fully coated. Line up on baking pan and cook at 400F for 30-50 minutes until crisp. I cooked mine for 40 minutes, but probably could have left them in another 5 minutes to crisp up even more. They were wonderful!
