3 medium-sized parsnips
1/2 tsp. paprika
Kosher salt and pepper, to taste
1-2 Tbs. cornstarch
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Place a large baking sheet with sides in the oven as it preheats. Wash parsnips and peel away wax coating; pat dry. Slice the parsnips into thick fry-like matchsticks, trying to keep them all the same size so they cook evenly.
Place the parsnip fries into a re-sealable gallon bag and toss with paprika and cornstarch, making sure all fries are evenly coated. Place parsnips onto the preheated baking sheet and spray with nonstick spray; season to taste with salt and pepper.
Bake for about 15 minutes, then flip fries over and bake for another 15 minutes. Fries are ready when they are fork-tender and nicely browned on all sides and crispy. Serve with desired dipping sauce.
