Baked Parsnip Fries With Citriburst Finger Lime-Ginger Aioli

This baked, healthy version of fries puts any deep fried version to shame. I promise no will even notice the difference. Parsnips can be used in place of carrots and potatoes in any recipe. They do turn black if cut and exposed to air just like potatoes, so best to prep them just before your are ready to bake them. I have used good old salt and pepper for seasoning. You can try adding minced garlic or rosemary for a fragrant variation.
