Cajun Seasoning

Parsnip Fries

  • 2 lbs parsnips, peeled
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp garlic olive oil or avocado oil


Cajun Seasoning

  • To make the cajun seasoning, combine all ingredients in a bullet style blender or a coffee grinder dedicated to seasonings. Blend until the fennel seeds are well ground. Store in a glass container

Cajun Parsnip Fries

  • Preheat the oven to 450F
  • Peel the parsnips and cut them into fry shapes. First cut the top and the tip off the parsnips. Then cut them in half (dividing the top and the bottom). From these halves, you will want to cut these in half the long way. Cut them in half or third again, making fry shapes. Try to keep all the fries about the same thickness so they cook up the same time.  
  • Place a sheet of parchment or a silicon liner on the baking sheet. Add the parsnip fries. Pour the garlic olive oil, 1/2 tsp. of salt and 2 tsp of cajun seasoning over the fries. Stir with clean hands until the fries are evenly coated.
  • Place the fries in the oven for 17 minutes at 450F.
  • Take them out and stir them around. Return to the oven for an additional 7 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve hot!
