Parsnip Crisps

To make the parsnip crisps, pre-heat the oven to 200C, using 4 large parsnips, peel and thinly slice the parsnips, place on a flat baking tray and rub in some sunflower oil, salt & pepper and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes, turning over the parsnips so they evenly brown every 10 minutes.  Bake until crisp.  Enjoy!
