I really really miss eating fries. I know its bad but it true. I have been searching for vegetables with a low carb count that can be substituted for fries. I read somewhere that people are using parsnips to make fries, cutting them like baby potatoes and mashed up too.
I really liked them and had the same texture as a fry. I added seasoning and I used the air fryer. It came out great.
Here is some facts why parsnips are great
- Parsnips are high in antioxidants including vitamin C and polyacetylenes that may prevent oxidative stress and chronic conditions like cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
- Parsnips are a great source of fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, and folate, as well as other important micronutrients.
- Parsnips are high in fiber, which can support regularity, improve your digestive health, regulate blood sugar levels, and enhance heart health.
- Parsnips are low in calories but contain a good amount of water and fiber, both of which may benefit weight loss.
- Parsnips are high in vitamin C and antioxidants, both of which may enhance your immune function and optimize health.
- Parsnips can be prepared in many ways and used in soups, stews, casseroles, gratins, and purees.
Parsnips are a type of root vegetable, closely related to carrots and parsley root.
They’re rich in several important nutrients and antioxidants that may improve immunity, enhance digestive health, and aid weight loss.
Best of all, they’re easy to prepare and have a sweet, earthy taste that works well in a variety of recipes, making them a great addition to a healthy, balanced diet.
