Parsnip crisps are a healthy vegetable snack that is an easy to make alternative to greasy shop-bought crisps. Although many people fry parsnip crisps, a healthier and lower fat way to make them is to bake the parsnip strips in the oven. These oven-baked crisps can be served as a snack for the family or a fun food for a social gathering.

Things you need

  • 230 grams of parsnips
  • 3 tbsp olive oil

  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 180C.

  2. 2

    Wash the parsnips and use a potato peeler to peel them.

  3. 3

    Shave thin strips of parsnips from the root with the potato peeler. Place the strips into a bowl.

  4. 4

    Sprinkle three tablespoons of olive oil on to the parsnip shavings and toss the parsnips. All surfaces should be covered with oil.

  5. 5

    Lay a non-stick baking tray on a flat surface and place the parsnip strips on the baking tray.

  6. 6

    Place the sheet into the preheated oven and bake for approximately 10 minutes. Use a wooden spoon to turn the strips every few minutes until they are light brown and crispy.

  7. 7

    Remove the crisps from the oven and slide the non-stick baking tray on to a counter top. Lift the crisps from the baking tray with a fork and place them on a kitchen roll.

  8. 8

    Drizzle sea salt on to the parsnip crisps while they are still hot and fresh out of the oven.

  9. 9

    Allow the crisps to cool. Serve them or store them in an airtight container.

Tips and warnings

  • Bake only one layer of parsnip crisps at a time.
  • Sprinkle different herbs and spices on the crisps for various flavours.
  • Serve parsnip crisps with various types of dips.
