This is one of Milo's favourite ways to eat parsnips, just made into simple fries! Try serving them with this tahini miso dip, or try Jolianne's favourite, a simple mixture of yogurt, miso & curry powder to accompany the parsnip fries.
Parsnip Fries with Miso Sauce
2 T olive oil
2 cloves garlic*, peeled and lightly smashed with the flat side of your knife (so that the cloves are still whole)
salt & pepper
For the sauce:
1 T miso paste*
1 T tahini
2 T soy sauce
1 T sesame oil
1 t maple syrup*
0.5 cm piece of ginger*
Peel the parsnips & cut into strips. Add them to a sealable container, together with garlic, olive oil & salt, shake well to evenly coated parsnips with oil.
Spread on a baking tray & bake at 350°F for about 30 minutes or until they are slightly browned.
In the meantime, mix all ingredients for the sauce in a high speed blender.
Take the parsnip fries out of the oven and serve with the dipping sauce on the side.
