Air Fryer Parsnip Fries! Fun Healthy & Fast!

The replication of international recipes does not have to be unhealthy and I am always looking for methods of maintaining flavour while keeping it light! I am really enjoying creating recipes for the air fryer. If you haven’t invested in one of these yet, there are plenty of great deals on them, so you can dip your toe in without the commitment. They are incredibly Parsnip fries are a really great snack that replace potato fries, leaving my halo intact! They are really easy to make and you can spray with truffle oil spray for variation. I do like the original version with the fresh herbs though! A lot!!

WINE NOTE: Oakey Chardonnay is a great pairing, which being a favourite of mine is a relief, as snacking often takes place while Chardonnay drinking!!
