Turnips are a low cal root vegetable, rich in vitamin C. Make turnip fries for a healthier alternative to french fries.
It’s simple: Toss the sliced turnips in seasoned olive oil and bake or air fry.
2 lbs turnips (4-5 med. turnips) cut into “french fry” sticks (about ¼ in thick)
½ c olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1-2 tbsp herbs (I used fresh basil)
salt/pepper to taste (I used cayenne, no salt)
Chop or grind garlic and seasonings and mix with olive oil.
Toss the turnip sticks in the olive oil. Make sure they’re well coated.
Preheat oven to 450°.
Spread turnips sticks on a baking sheet in a single layer.
Bake 30 minutes. Toss/Stir after the first 15 minutes.
Turn oven to broil and broil fries an additional 3-4 minutes for crispier fries.
To Air Fry:
Preheat airfryer to 390°.
Place turnip sticks in the basket (2-3 layers okay).
Airfry for 10 minutes, tossing after the first 5 minutes.
Fry an additional 1-2 minutes for crispier fries.
