When I first started this blog, parsnips were in season, so I thought, I should make parsnip chips as one of my first blog posts. I went and bought the parsnips, sliced them, oiled them and baked them in the oven. And they came out a hot mess. With something so simple, I failed miserably. Yet here I am again, but this time I did it right. Baked parsnip chips with olive oil and salt, everybody. Best snack ever.
The first time I made this, I didn’t think to use a mandoline slicer. And that’s where it all went wrong. I used a plain old knife and thought it would be good enough, but it wasn’t. You NEED to use a mandoline slicer to make these and put it on a really thin setting. That way, you will get a nice crispy chip. Even if it’s baked.

If you don’t have a mandoline slicer, you can purchase one here. I ended up ordering the handheld OXO brand and thought it did its job fine. All in all, this is such a good snack, and I love that it’s super easy to make and super healthy.
