Maple Roasted Parsnip Chips

Maple Roasted Parsnip Chips

I’ve been waiting all year for Parsnips to come into season here in Australia as I’ve been wanting to adapt a delicious sounding Roasted Parsnip Dish I found in Nigella Lawson – Feast.

On a recent Farmers Market Visit I picked up a couple of parsnips and got straight to cooking a couple of batches of these delicious Maple Roasted Parsnip Chips – much to my family’s delight!

These Maple Roasted Parsnip Chips are super simple to prepare – start by melting a quarter of a cup of coconut oil (where to find coconut oil).

Then peel and chip your parsnips into chip sized pieces, place them into an oven proof dish and mix through the melted coconut oil and drizzle over maple syrup. (where to find maple syrup)

Then, place the parsnip chips into the oven and cook for 15 minutes and remove from the oven to turn the chips over before a final 10 to 15 minutes in the oven. Allow to cool slightly once cooked as they become incredibly hot!

    Do they taste anything like coconut, considering the 1/4 cup of coconut oil?


  1. […] 19. Maple Roasted Parsnip Chips These chips are made from parsnips, and most new Paleo followers will probably have a very limited experience with the parsnip. It does find its way into a lot of Paleo cooking because it can be used in many different ways. Don’t knock it till you try it, because they tend to take on the surrounding flavors, in this case yummy maple syrup and coconut oil. So while you may have ignored parsnips a thousand times before, maybe it’s time to give them a chance. You may end up liking them, especially since you can’t go wrong when they’re baked in fat and sugar. […]
