Shaved parsnip and carrot chips

It’s been a stunning weekend on the Gold Coast! As it’s my last semester of university I’ve been making the most of the time with my friends. It’s an exciting time for us all to be moving onto the next stage of our lives, but is also marks the ‘end of an era’.

With this in mind I had some friends over for dinner last night and everyone contributed a delicious dish. I made my vegan spelt pizzas as they are simple yet tasty and don’t require hours of cooking.

Delicious dinner!

Now onto the shaved parsnip and carrot chips recipe. A few weeks ago now I made these as I felt like something crunchy – they are a great substitute for potato chips!

Shaved vegetables!

To shave the parsnip and carrots, I used a vegetable peeler as it ensures an evenly sliced chip.

Coated in coconut oil

Try not to overcrowd the baking tray as then the chips won’t become crunchy.

Crispy chips.

These are best eaten immediately otherwise they will lose their crunch.

  • 2 carrots, washed and peeled

  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F and line two baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Using a vegetable peeler, shave the parsnip and carrots.
  3. Lightly coat with coconut oil and place on lined baking trays.

Served on top of grass-fed beef.

They can be eaten by themselves as a snack or on top of beef or fish to keep your dinners interesting!

  1. Hi there, these look delicious! Totes about to go and make them for lunch.
    I just wanted to say that I love your blog, I started ‘eating healthy’ about three months ago, so I scoured the internet for healthy meal ideas and stumbled upon your blog – it’s been brilliant, I’ve done a few of your recipes so far and love them.
    So thanks :),
