Parsnip Chips

Move over potato chips, parsnip chips are the new kids on the block! Here's a fun way to use parsnips to make healthy, baked vegetable chips. 

If you know me well, you know that I'm all about greens so I've even found a way to add some green to these fries too by adding parsley! 

Parsnip chips are a great addition to pan-fried fish to create a healthy (and gluten free) version of the dinner favourite fish and chips! They also make a great afternoon snack for the kids; served with our sugar free tomato sauce. Ready in 25 minutes these are a healthy alternative to deep fried potato chips. 

Did you know pre-made/pre-cut potato chips may contain an unhealthy preservative called sulphite? This preservative can be responsible for many upper-respiratory symptoms such as asthma, post-nasal drip and sinus. It can also contribute to symptoms of IBS. Homemade is always best! 

Parsnips are priced reasonably too and have a long shelf life making them an affordable whole food ingredient to add to your weekly menu. 

Nutrition 101:

  • Parsnips are rich in dietary fibre and contain beneficial amounts of vitamins C, E and K as well as minerals manganese and potassium. 
  • Their potassium and folate content make them great for cardiovascular health whilst their vitamin C and E content boosts your immune system and is great for your skin.
  • The vitamin K and manganese that you get from parsnips supports healthy bones.
