Savory Cinnamon Fries

I used to hate roasted or cooked carrots…they get all smooshy and soggy, ruining their natural, crunchy appeal. Bleh. After I stumbled upon this recipe last week on The Healthy Apple, though, I decided to put my preconceived notions aside and try them again with an open mind. Boy, am I glad I did so because I have had a change of heart and may have found one of my favorite side dishes. Sweet and savory, but healthy! See you never, soggy veggies!

Ingredients
(slightly altered from the original The Healthy Apple’s Apple n’ Parsnip Crunchy Fries)
2 granny smith apples
4 large parsnips
6 large carrots
1/2 onion
Olive oil
Agave Nectar and cinnamon to taste 

Begin by washing/peeling the parsnips and carrots. 

Slice veggies and apples into thin, fry-like shapes (the more slender, the better for crunch purposes).

Place parsnips, carrots, apples and onion onto a baking sheet. Lightly coat with cooking spray/olive oil and generously sprinkle with cinnamon. Place in the oven at 400°F for 30 minutes or until the fries are golden brown with a crunchy texture.

Drizzle with Agave Nectar to serve. Mmmm…cinammony goodness. WARNING: your kitchen will smell absolutely divine while/post roasting. What food item are hesitant to re-try? 

Sprinkled with Love,
Lauren
