FRESH Ideas: Oven-Roasted Parsnip Fries with Creamy Balsamic Dipping Sauce

Oven fries are a great way to alleviate the fat that is added when frying, but often they come out of the oven limp and soggy. Keep your oven fries on the crisp side by tossing them in cornstarch before tossing them in oil and seasoning. The cornstarch gives the fries a crisp coating that mimics frying.



3 large parsnips

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 tablespoon chopped rosemary

1 teaspoon garlic powder

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1/2 cup light sour cream



Peel the parsnips and cut into 1/2 inch fries. Place in a large bowl and toss with the cornstarch. Add the rosemary, garlic powder, olive oil, salt and pepper and toss to combine. Spread in an even layer on a baking sheet and place in a preheated 400 degree oven. Bake for 15 minutes and then shake the pan. Make sure the fries are not sticking to the pan. Continue to bake for another 10 minutes and then check for doneness. To make the sauce stir together the balsamic vinegar and sour cream and serve alongside the fries.
