Air fryer parsnip fries are your new favorite side dish! Made in under 20 minutes using only 5 ingredients!



2 pounds whole parsnips, peeled and cut into 1/2" strips*

3 tablespoons olive oil

1-2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped (about two sprigs)

2 teaspoons ground nutmeg

1/4 cup grated or shredded parmesan cheese


In a large mixing bowl, toss the parsnip strips in the olive oil, fresh rosemary, and nutmeg. Once evenly coated, transfer to the air fryer basket. Place the basket in the instant pot (if using the air fryer attachment) or air fryer. For the air fryer attachment, use half the amount and make this in two batches. This allows for more even crispness and less crowding.

Place the air fryer lid securely on top and set it at 400 degrees in air fryer mode. Cook for 10-13 minutes, or until golden brown. Add an additional 2-3 minutes until the desired browning is achieved. 

Carefully remove the basket (it will be hot). Transfer to a serving dish and top with the parmesan cheese. Add additional fresh rosemary if desired.


* julienned strips can be achieved by cutting wide and flat sections of the parsnip and then cutting into 1/2-1" strips on the cut side down.

  • For the oven, place the parsnip strips that are coated in the olive oil mixture on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown flipping halfway through cooking time.
