These crisp, salty and smoky vegetable strips are from chef Quinn Hatfield of Hatfield's in L.A.

  1. 1 large parsnip (1/2 pound)
  2. Vegetable oil, for brushing
  3. Smoked salt, for sprinkling
  1. Using a sharp vegetable peeler, slice a large peeled parsnip lengthwise into thin strips. Brush both sides with vegetable oil and arrange on a parchment paper–lined cookie sheet. Season with smoked salt. Cover with a sheet of parchment and top with another cookie sheet. Bake at 300° for 1 hour and 15 minutes, until crisp. Let cool before serving.
