Hi all, I hope you are having a great Monday! I am still in NYC and loving it. Shopping, sites, Rock of Ages, and of course the food has been amazing. I will give you a full update on Wednesday when I return. until then, put these in your oven and wait for the crunch.
On to the Food
Who said chips had to be made with potatoes? Not me that’s for sure.
Today I wanted to create something a little different and of course use one of my favorite kitchen products— a mandolin. If you have never tried this slicer, it is a must-have in your kitchen. Parsnips have a very unique flavor but there is something about them that I just love. For this recipe I thought I would kick them up and add a little cinnamon and honey. They turned out almost candy like and were very yummy.
Let’s just say I probably should have peeled a few more parsnips into the mix but it was all I had left. This is great for an appetizer or even a side dish with a nice piece of fish.
- 1 Large Parsnip
- 1 Tbsp. Honey
- 1 Tsp. Cinnamon
- 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
- Ground pepper
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees and peel the parsnip
- Using your slicer, slice the parsnip into discs.
- In a large bowl toss the parsnips slices with olive oil, pepper, cinnamon and honey.
- Arrange on a pre lined baking sheet and bake for about 25-30 minutes.
- Turn parsnips after 15 minutes and continue cooking.
- Remove when golden brown.
Zesty Tip: Be careful not to burn these little chips. Because of the high sugar content they will burn if left unattended. I like to move them to the top rack after the first 15 minutes and turning once. This will allow them to dry out and crisp up without burning.
Talk back in Canada. Have a great start to your week.
