Nut Butter Parsnip Fries


ver since I read Angela's recipe for nut butter crusted parsnip fries, I knew I had to try 'em! Could parsnips really be turned into fries!!!?? Aren't they like carrots!!?

Tonight for dinner I whipped up a batch of the parsnip fries to go with veggie burgers.

They did not disappoint!

When they were cooking, the hubby thought it smelled like chocolate chip cookies in our house (He is slightly unstable - clearly it smelled like PB cookies).

I had a small serving with 1 veggie burger. It was a delicious and satisfying dinner.

Rewind to lunch ...
(I will spare you the ugly pictures. I might do that from time to time - K?)

2 pieces of toast
1 pack of edamame
1 orange
1 cheese stick

Rewind to breakfast ...

(1/3 cup coffee, 2/3 cup almond breeze, 1/2 cup quick oats, 1 T Dark chocolate PB, 1 T granola, 1 tsp coconut).

What is your favourite type of fry? Sweet potato? Regular?
And how do you like to eat them - salt? ketchup? Poutine?

I am a sucker for sweet potato fries with a chipotle or mayo mustard dip. I also love a good, melty poutine now and then!!

Please don't tell me you don't eat fries.

Or I will think you are deranged.

Never tried sweet potatoes so I'd have to go with regular. I like them 2 ways...poutine or salt and ketchup(lots of ketchup).

Sweet potato fries are only good if the place cooks them right, I find they can be really off and soggy at some places. (Or burnt..)

So.. regular fries are my favorite.

Swiss Chalet is great, I drown them in Chalet Sauce. (drrrrrrooooooooooownnnn them.)

NewYork Fries - they are great on their own, but they have my favorite poutine.

Otherwise, generally I would eat fries with some sort of mustard or mayo dip. I don't usually use ketchup.

I can never pass up a sweet potato fry!

When I made those nut butter fries my husband also thought our house smelled like cookies. :)

I love sweet potato fries. I have this recipe for the parsnip fries printed but I just haven't made it. I look at it each week and think, "is this the week I will actually buy parsnips?" I'll do it for sure sometime.

Seriously, can you imagine someone not eating any sort of fries? Hope we're not insulting too many people out there but, really? Come on!

I have yet to try a sweet potato fry...but I am going to the store this week ;) I love carrot fries...I am going to make them for my bro when he gets here, just to see if i can cure his french fry obsession!

My old school favorite is regular fries with ranch dressing. But if I'm feeling healthier it's sweet tater fries with ketchup :)

No sweet potato fries for me - just plain potatoes - deep fried so crispy on the outside, tender on the inside.

Dipped in a mixture of this:

Dijon mustard/ketchup/Frank's hot sauce and salt and pepper. The first time I did this at a restaurant with my hubs, I believe he thought I had lost my mind!

My favourite fries are those at Bushwakker. So perfect! I miss them! But I also love home-made sweet potato fries. And poutine is awesome once in a while. That one you had at Beer Bros was redonk... and I had poutine once that included duck confit. I mean REALLY.

I have yet to meet a fry I don't like! You really can't beat fries dipped in mayo, but since it's just about the worst thing ever for you, it is definitely a rare treat!

I love regular fries the most..but I do love sweet potato cheetahs! my fiance doesn't like sweet potatoes, so we stick to regular most of the time.
