About this recipe: Also known as parsnip chips, these are deliciously crisp, lightly sweet and totally moreish. Sliced parsnips are par-boiled, dipped in melted butter, chilled, dredged in flour and then deep-fried until crisp. They are the perfect snack.
In an effort to make these more healthful, I tossed the sliced parsnips with 1T olive oil, sprinkled them with salt, pepper, cayenne, and chile powder, and baked them at 375 for about 10 minutes. Delicious, and a nice change from potatoes and yams which I also do this way. - 31 Aug 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I followed the suggestion of another reviewer and simply peeled and sliced the parsnips, tossed them in about 1 tbsp of olive oil, and sprinkled with cayenne, salt, and pepper. I baked them at 375 approximately 10-15 minutes (turning once). They are FABULOUS. The sweet taste of the parsnip melds beautifully with the cayenne and salt. I will definitely buy a larger amount of parsnips next time and make a big batch to keep around for snacks. Much better than potato chips! - 16 Feb 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The healthier version Kirsten2006 mentioned in her review was just delicious. It's like eating guilt-free chips! I experimented with one batch, using some tandoori seasoning and a bit of sugar instead of the cayenne and it added another nice layer of flavour. I'm going to keep experimenting with different seasonings with this one. A definite keeper! - 14 May 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
