Ingredients

Fries:
  • Top half butternut squash, cut lengthwise into sticks
  • 2 parsnips, peeled and cut lengthwise into sticks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Dip:
  • 3 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Leafy tops of 2 parsnips
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Juice and zest of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup low-fat 2-percent  Greek yogurt 

Directions

For the fries: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the squash sticks on one baking sheet, and place the parsnip sticks on another. Drizzle both with the olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook the squash sticks for about 5 minutes, and cook the parsnips until golden and crisp, turning once or twice, about 30 minutes.

For the dip: Combine the basil, salt, parsnip tops, garlic and lemon juice and zest in a food processor fitted with a steel blade and pulse until smooth. With the machine on, slowly pour in the olive oil. Blend until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl and add the Greek yogurt; mix together. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 1 week.
