Allison says, “I love this recipe as an alternative to the typical burger & fries. The key is roasting the parsnips & carrots long enough so they get a slightly crisp texture.”

Grass Fed Beef Burgers w with Carrot & Parsnip Fries

Serves 4 


Prep Ahead (up to 4 days in advance)

1. Cut carrots & parsnips into ~3” “fries” trying to stay on the thin side.

2. Toss vegetables with 2 tablespoons of olive oil,  2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning, salt and pepper. Chili powder is a nice substitute for Cajun seasoning.

3. Form meat into 4 patties
(or if using frozen patties, store in fridge to defrost).

4. Store cut vegetables & patties in fridge for up to 4 days.

Day of

1. Pre-heat oven to 425 F.

2. Place carrots & parsnips in a single layer on 1-2 baking sheets.

3. Roast for at least 30 minutes or until crispy. Note: this may take up to 45-50 minutes depending on thickness of the cut and your oven.

4. Grill burgers for 4-5min on each side or desired doneness. For a healthier option, serve as lettuce wraps with avocado slices.
