The perfect side dish or snack for the cozy season are these Baked Parsnip Fries with Garlic Yogurt Dip!
Sometimes I crave a dose of fries and when I discovered parsnips make some of the most delicious oven-baked fries, I knew I HAD to share them with you.
Dressed with delicious toppings like rosemary and parmesan PLUS an easy garlic yogurt dip, you might just want to keep these fries all to yourself.
I LOVE making oven-baked fries. They’re a perfect side dish for burgers or roasts OR make them to enjoy while watching your favourite movie or sporting event!
The parsnips are baked with dried rosemary for a warm, buttery taste and then topped with a little fresh rosemary and parmesan.
One of the most important things to remember when making oven fries is to cut the parsnips generally into the same-sized spears, which will help with even cooking.

Baked Parsnip Fries
- 1 lb parsnips (about 4 large or 6 medium sized parsnips)
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp dried rosemary
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese

Spread out the parsnips in a single layer on the parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes, then flip the parsnip fries and bake another 15-20 minutes until done and the fries start to brown.

Garlic Yogurt Dip
Mix together greek yogurt, minced garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning to your liking (i.e. add more salt, pepper or garlic). Set aside until ready to use.
And, what’s great about this recipe is you can use it as a base to make fries out of other vegetables too; carrots are another favourite of mine!
Plus, the Garlic Yogurt Dip is unrealll; you might want to make extra.

I am so pleased to see parsnips being used in your recipe, Jessica. It is a vegetable that is so underappreciated, isn’t it? I love what you did with them – that Garlic Yogurt Dip sounds as irresistible as the parsnip fries sprinkled with Parmesan. I am looking forward to trying them. Thanks for sharing!
