Rosemary Parsnip Home Fries

More than often, I post recipes that are indulgent and dessert themed.

As many of you know right now, I'm avoiding nuts (and all other foods high in lectins) to give my leaky gut a chance to heal. Which means.. I don't actually go to town eating many of the dessert recipes that I post. I give them to my husband, family and friends. I am often asked what it is that I eat? Here's an example.

Our most valued piece of kitchen equipment is our cast iron skillet. It stays oiled and ready to go at all times on the stove. Our fridge is always stocked with veggies and freezer with local organic meat. I don't follow recipes, I just cook, throwing various medleys of a meat + veggies into my skillet and sauteing them until perfection.

If like me, you aren't generally crazy about parsnips I think you will be pleasently surprised with this healthy recipe idea. Cooked in this way they taste more like delicious starchy potatoes, than a vegetable. The key is to use plenty of oil. Don't be shy! I always have on hand coconut and grape seed oil. Both taste great here.

Today I'm not providing you specific ingredient amounts. There's no need. Learning to cook requires the act of taste testing as you go.. as long as you do that you'll have great results.

  • Finely sliced Parsnips
  • Garlic Powder
  • Dried Rosemary
  • Sea Salt
  • Oil.


  1. Combine several Tablespoons of oil and parsnips and skillet.
  2. Cook over medium heat 20 minutes or so until cooked through and crispy on the edges (If at any point they soak up all the oil, add a little more).
  3. In the last 10 minutes of cooking add the rosemary and salt.
  4. Garlic powder sticks to my cast iron skillet- so I always throw it on at the very end.


Be careful not to overfill the pan with parsnips, or else you will be sauteing these homefries for longer than you may like to.

Feel free to experiment with other spices too!

I often throw in a little turmeric just for its anti-inflammitory properties. If used in small amounts you can't even taste it.

Served with some applegate sausage or bacon and a big mug of tea (sweetened with Nunaturals Stevia) you have a perfect delicious breakfast, that will keep your blood sugar stable! What more could you ask from a meal?

  3. Shelly R

    Genius! Can’t believe I didn’t think to do this. Made this tonight with some sauteed kale and sausage. (I sprinkle tumeric into just about everything.)

    I was just introduced to parsnips last month, and I LOVE them!! This recipe looks great, thank you!

    LOVE this. I adore parsnips when I do a roasted root veggie thing (basically chop up various root veggies – carrot, parsnip, sweet potato, rutabaga, etc) and this sounds even better, since they’ll get good and browned from the cast iron skillet. 🙂

    I made these last night for breakfast for dinner with over easy eggs. The fries were so good!!!

    This is a standard go-to for me too Brittany. I really enjoy them sauteed in some nitrate free bacon or pancetta fat and paprika.

    I got to watch others eat home fries at a diner on Easter morning and have been craving them ever since. Just added fresh rosemary and parsnips to my shopping list!

    I use parsnips in a roasted vegetable medley in the oven. This looks yummy!
    I see that you include quite a bit of pork in your menus. My accupuncturist has indicated to remove pork from my diet as it us hard to digest … taking 24 hours minimum. Also it is very acidic. This makes breakfast a little harder since grains are also eliminated. The naturopath eliminated pork for acidic reasons . Eating becomes so complicated!!

    I just made this and it was so good. I’m pregnant and incredibly nauseous but trying to stick to a paleo diet. This worked very well for me. Thanks!

Hey Everyone!

Please bear with me, I'm almost ready to unveil the new Club Angell, so in the mean time, if you have any trouble, just hang tight, I'll have it up and running by Monday!

Thank you!
