"A different kind of chip that's cooked in vegetable oil and very simple to make. Just add salt. If you want to give it a kick, add chili powder and cayenne." — KOOLBRICK

vegetable oil for frying
In an effort to make these more healthful, I tossed the sliced parsnips with 1T olive oil, sprinkled them with salt, pepper, cayenne, and chile powder, and baked them at 375 for about 10 minutes. Delicious, and a nice change from potatoes and yams which I also do this way.
did the healthier version as suggested by others, loved em!
I followed the suggestion of another reviewer and simply peeled and sliced the parsnips, tossed them in about 1 tbsp of olive oil, and sprinkled with cayenne, salt, and pepper. I baked them at 375 approximately 10-15 minutes (turning once). They are FABULOUS. The sweet taste of the parsnip melds beautifully with the cayenne and salt. I will definitely buy a larger amount of parsnips next time and make a big batch to keep around for snacks. Much better than potato chips!
The healthier version Kirsten2006 mentioned in her review was just delicious. It's like eating guilt-free chips! I experimented with one batch, using some tandoori seasoning and a bit of sugar instead of the cayenne and it added another nice layer of flavour. I'm going to keep experimenting with different seasonings with this one. A definite keeper!
I have always wanted to try this vegetable and this is a great, easy beginner recipe. The whole family loved it. Will definitely make again.
Like some other reviewers, I used olive oil and baked them. I also put on chili powder and they had a great kick! The chili goes great with the sweetness of the parsnips.
Mt BF loooooved these! He said they were the best chips he's ever had!! I also made a few sweet potato, yum!
