Michelle Cooks: Garlic Turmeric Crispy Parsnip Fries

We are putting a spin on a signature side dish in this week’s Wellness Wednesday.

Michelle put together a quick and healthy alternative to French fries and we have the recipe for you below:

Garlic Turmeric Crispy Parsnip Fries


  • 3-4 large parsnips
  • ¼ cup avocado oil (or olive oil)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • sea salt, to taste
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Slice parsnips in even slices and toss in a small bowl with avocado oil. Add garlic and turmeric.
  3. Transfer parsnips to a baking sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt and parmesan cheese and bake for 15 minutes.
  4. Take the baking sheet out and carefully flip parsnips with a spatula. Sprinkle with more parmesan cheese. Return to oven and bake for 15 more minutes, until parsnips are evenly browned
