These oven baked Carrot and Parsnip Fries are a quick and easy side dish and a great change to the traditional potato fry. They are one of our go-to quick side dishes and when these two vegetables are combined, its a match made in heaven. The olive oil, mixed herbs and salt and pepper give them a fantastic flavour but you could use almost any herb or spice that appeals to you. Parsnip belongs to the carrot family of root vegetables. Parsnip and Carrot are both high in vitamin C, which is an important nutrient that helps to fight off bacteria and viruses and boosts our immune system.
