Parsnip and Carrot Fries

I’ve been noticing these parsnip fries popping up on various menus through out the city, and it wasn’t until the other week when I finally decided to give them a go at Woodlot restaurant. I thought it would be neat to create a similar recipe so I did this by adding carrots into the mix and changing up the seasoning a little bit.  The parsnip and carrot fries really do the trick for me, not only were they easy to make but they were a fantastic .alternative to the highly addictive and unhealthy fries I only enjoy on special occasions.photo 3
