Curry Roasted Carrot Parsnip Fries

We are about to totally astound you with the flavor blast in these Curry Roasted Carrot Parsnip Fries. No, no, they’re not your traditional “French fries”. They’re even better than that. Let us tell ya why.

Curry Roasted Carrot Parsnip Fries

Let’s start with carotenoids. Carrots are loaded with them. Carotenoids are the pigment in red, orange, and yellow vegetables. These colors carry an important array of nutrients that are absolutely vital to your health. They offer nutrients that can be converted to vitamin A in the body, while also providing antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Parsnips on the other hand are loaded with vitamin C. They are also a good source of manganese and folate. A lot of nutrients that you will not be getting from old-fashioned French fries!

Not only are the nutrients in this recipe super powerful, but the flavors are too. The curry adds a savory touch, while the maple syrup adds that final hint of sweetness to really tug at those taste buds. And let’s not forget about the creamy deliciousness of the avocado sauce you’ll make on the side. This sauce is a fabulous combo of lime, cilantro, and red onion. Basically, similar to guacamole, but way easier to do (just throw everything into a food processor).

Let’s get started with this recipe! Preheat the oven to 425F. Cut the carrots and parsnips into french fry looking pieces, approximately 1/2″ wide, 4″ long, and throw them into a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, mix together the olive oil, maple syrup, curry and garlic. Add this sauce into the larger bowl and massage it into the carrots and parsnips, so that all pieces are coated. Then, add the coated carrots and parsnips to a baking sheet, and bake for 15 minutes. Using a spatula, flip over and bake for another 10 minutes or until crisp. While that’s happening, let’s make our avocado sauce. In a blender or food processor, add all ingredients for the sauce except for the salt, blend until smooth, and add salt to taste. Once the fries are done baking, enjoy with the avocado dipping sauce!

    These look delicious and I bet they taste even better. I haven’t had carrots as fries before, but I bet they are delightful.
