Have you ever cooked a turnip? Not exactly your go-to tuber? Well, me either! However, I have discovered a way to turn turnips and carrots into highly flavorful baked fries that are a real treat to eat! I don’t have many pictures to share with you on this, but pictures aren’t really necessary to master making these fun potato fry alternatives.
Peel and cut about 4 parsnips into 3-4 inch long fry shapes and place in bowl
Melt 2 Tbs. of ghee and pour over fries
Toss or mix the fries to coat evenly
Place coated fries in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper
Bake in oven set at 350 degrees for about 15-17 minutes; stir fries around; continue baking for about 15 minutes more until golden and crispy.
Peel and cut about 5-6 carrots into 3-4 inch fries and place in a bowl
Drizzle enough olive oil over fries so that they are evenly coated after stirring them around
Stir seasoned fries to coat all sides of fries with seasonings
Place fries in a single layer on parchment lined baking sheet
Bake in oven set at 350 for about 15 minutes; stir fries around; continue baking for about 15 minutes more until crispy.
I usually do these at the same time and I still can’t decide which I prefer. It’s a fun addition to grilled meat. All you need is a salad to complete the meal and, voila, nutrient-dense, yummy, fun food!
