A few weeks ago, a friend texted me to let me know she was making my Tex-Mex Taco Casserole. She was at the grocery store picking up ingredients and then promptly added, “what the f*** is a parsnip?”

I snorted very elegantly laughed and told her it was a root vegetable… and that it looks like a large white carrot. She had never bought or eaten a parsnip in all 27 years of her life. And at that moment, I realized that the first time I ate one was 4 months ago.

In those 4 months I learned that I am INTO parsnips, like v v into them.

Specifically baked parsnip fries.

Roasting parsnips brings out a sweet flavor which I love. And, I mean, who doesn’t want to eat fries?! But the sweetness needs something to balance it out – vegan chipotle dipping sauce. Yes! The base of this sauce is made from cashews, so it is vegan, paleo, and Whole30 compliant.

      Thanks Brie! And I’m glad you discovered them too… are they just a new vegetable?! Or have we both been missing out for years?

      Aren’t they just the best?! And I have been SO into cashew cream lately… so why not add chipotle?
