Serves: 4 Preparation time: 5 mins Cooking time: 15 mins



  • 2 parsnips, peeled
  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 2 beetroot, scrubbed
  • Filippo Berio Mild & Light Olive Oil for deep frying
  • Sea salt to taste


  1. Thinly slice the parsnips, sweet potatoes and beetroot - the thinner the slices the crisper the crisps will be. Blot the slices with kitchen paper to remove excess moisture.
  2. Half fill a pan or deep fat fryer with Filippo Berio Mild & Light Olive Oil and heat to 180°C/350°F. Deep fry the vegetable slices in batches for 3-4 minutes at a time, stirring occasionally until golden. Drain well on kitchen paper.
  3. Toss the vegetable crisps together and season to taste with sea salt. Serve.

Mild & Light In Colour Olive Oil

This Olive Oil is a healthy substitute for other cooking oils. With its high smoke point it is the ideal choice for frying, stir-frying and baking. The light bouquet allows the natural flavour of food to come through.
