Now for those of you limiting your carbs to 20 per day or less, that may still be pretty hefty. Enter the chip! This recipe makes about 4 cups of cooked chips from the equivalent of 1 cup of raw parsnips. A heaping one cup serving of chips has only 4g net carbs. It’s a perfect snack that can even fit into a very low carb diet if you plan it out right.
And they are oh so good! They have that slightly sweet thing going on, so when you eat them all crispy and salty and stuff – woo boy are they good. Now if you end up eating the whole batch in one sitting? Well I accept zero responsibility for that – but you might want to make sure you aren’t alone with the bowl just in case!
Makes about 4 cups of chips
2 medium parsnips, peeled & sliced
oil for frying (your choice)
Alternatively, you can toss these in a tablespoon of olive oil and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 6 – 8 minutes until golden brown. I tried it both ways and frying them produced better looking chips, but baking them still got them crispy and delicious so use whichever method you prefer.
