Parsnip Chips

Parsnip Chips

2 pounds parsnips, peeled, cut into ¼-inch medallions (about 6 cups)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons chili powder
¼ teaspoon salt

Position oven rack on the lowest rung. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Place parsnips in a large bowl. Add olive oil and stir to coat. Sprinkle chili powder and salt over parsnips, and stir well.

Cover an 11 x 17-inch baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread parsnip chips out in one layer. Bake 15 minutes, and flip. Return to oven and bake another 15 minutes (20-25 minutes for extra-crispy chips).

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)

  1. Hello!

    I’ve been following your blog posts for a while now and I really enjoy your posts and recipes. I was wondering, even when your not fasting do you still follow the diet, which appears to be vegan as well? Thanks!

    • Hi, Amanda! Thanks so much for your comment. When I’m not on the Daniel Fast, I do follow the guidelines, for the most part. I typically don’t have dairy, sugar, caffeine, or processed foods. However, I’m not vegan because I do eat meat.

      • i am on the end of my second day of the daniel fast. extreme caffeine headache!!!! any pointers on helping it? thanks in advance

        • Hang in there! The first two or three days are usually the hardest. Make sure you are drinking water throughout the day. It won’t take away the headache, but it will help. Also, pray. 🙂

  2. I tried making these last night and they did not turn out right. They were very soggy and burnt:( any tips

    • Oh, I’m so sorry they didn’t turn out! The parsnips will not be crunchy, but they shouldn’t be soggy. Any chance you used too much oil to coat them? Did you flip them halfway through? You used parchment paper? Just trying to figure out what happened.

    how do you get your cook book would like one thank you

  4. Hi Kristen, I purchased your book in December 2013. All I can say is WOW!!! I have searched for a book like this for a long time. God has truly blessed you with his word of truth.I love to read books that give all the praise and glory to God without opinions catering to the worlds aspect of things. “I am just so excited” and I can’t wait to begin my 21 day experience. God bless and keep up the the good work of yeilding to the Holy Spirit for guidance.

    • All I can say is, “Praise God!” I’m thankful the book has blessed you, and I believe God will bless your desire to draw close to Him through prayer and fasting. I appreciate your kind words and encouragement so much. May the Lord pour out His favor on your life in BIG WAYS this year!

    Hello Kristen:

    I just made these tonight (Jan 7,, 2014) and they are delicious… So easy to make.

    Our church has been participating in the Daniel Fast since Jan 6 and will end it on Jan. 8. whereby we will gather tomorrow night for praise and worship…

    Thank you for all of these recipes. Tomorrow night, I’m making the Grilled Tarragon Asparagus.

    God Bless,

    Rebecca Foster
