- 500g parsnips
- 1 egg
- 1 cup breadcrumbs
- Top and tail and peel parsnips and cut into sticks about finger size. Boil them in a pot of lightly salted water for 5-10 minutes or until tender. Drain off the water and leave to cool.
- Lightly whisk the egg in a bowl. When the parsnips are cool enough to touch dip each parsnip stick into the egg and then coat with the breadcrumbs.
- Cover the base of a frying pan with a small layer of oil. Fry the parsnip sticks until golden brown and crispy.
- Serve immediately. Delicious with cream cheese as a dip.
