"An original idea. That can't be too hard. The library must be full of them." -Stephen Fry, Actor
The parsnips are a great variation on potatoes for home fries. Full of sweet flavor they also have tons of fiber and Vitamin C. The perfect way to get an additional point on your Mediterranean diet score.
Keeping the pan covered while cooking helps the fries stay moist. By increasing the heat at the end to help brown the fries you get the best of both worlds: light and moist home fries on the outside and brown on the outside.
