Author Notes: If there is a veggie that can be transformed into a baked french fry then my oven is going to see it! Having done the ordinary potato and sweet potato version many times I wanted to stir things up a bit. So when I went to the market this past week and spotted some turnips I was oddly drawn to them. Could I really turn this root veggie into a “french fry?” It was an endeavor I was determined to take on . For some reason, I never thought to include this interesting veggie in our dinner menu which is pretty crazy considering the entire turnip has only 35 calories, give or take, with a hearty amount of fiber. Well, I am excited to report that with a little canola oil and spices this dish was even better than expected! I think I may even be bold enough to serve it as an appetizer at my next party..will keep you posted!”[email protected]
