the snack that bites back

I was reading the Sweet Amadine blog and she had a recipe for parsnip chips that sounded interesting.  Now, I have never had parsnips but I was willing to give it a try.

I did not have one of the spices she called for and I changed one out for another.  I actually sliced the chips a bit thin but these turned out yummy.  My Beloved is looking for snack foods occasionally and thisis a good one.  He keeps snacking on the bits that I did not take pictures of because they are not pretty.  And then breathes fire.  You may wish to calm the spices down.

Parsnip Chips

1 pound parsnip, peeled and sliced in 1/8 to 1/4 inch rounds

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon paparika

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoon chipolte

1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 475 degrees Fahrenheit.  Mix all the spices together.  Set aside.  Put the oil in a large bowl.  Add the parsnips and coat.  Add the spices and make sure everything is covered.  Lay out in a single layer on two cookie sheets.  Bake 10 to 20 minutes or until golden.  Watch these!!!!!  They brown fast.

Just slightly addictive.  You could change up the spices if you did not wish something that bit you.  Basil and garlic would be good expecially with a bit of parmesan.
