I’m pretty sure I could eat fries at every single meal. They’re crispy and salty and I’ve managed to convince myself that they go with everything. But, in order to feel good about eating them on a regular basis, I started making my own and baking them rather than frying them. They’re still just as crispy and delicious, just minus all the fat.
I thought it would be really delicious to change up my regular recipe by using parsnips instead of potatoes and throwing a little curry powder on top, because curry is one of those spices that makes everything better. Parsnips aren’t as starchy as potatoes and they have a sweet taste to them, kind of like carrots, and it turns out they make really delicious fries!
While ketchup is all well and good for your regular french fry, these curried parsnip fries deserve something a little extra special. Curry and cilantro has been a favorite flavor combination of mine for a long time, so I thought it would be nice to make a cilantro hummus dip to go along with these fries. I made it a little thinner than I would normally make my hummus, which makes it super easy for dipping. It’s also a really nice color, so it looks pretty on your plate. 🙂
These fries would go great as a side dish for your favorite veggie burger, or you could just enjoy them as a healthy snack during the day. Either way, I hope you love the bright bold flavors!
