(Serves 8)

 

Ingredients:

1,3kg turnips, peeled and cut into 8mm x  8cm sticks (use smaller turnips 8cm in diametre, larger ones get fibrous inside)
2 tbs vegetable oil
2⁄3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 1⁄2 tsp garlic salt
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp onion powder

 

Method:

Preheat oven to 210°C. Line 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil and lightly grease. Toss turnips with oil in a large bowl until coated. Put parmesan, garlic salt, paprika, and onion powder in a large resealable plastic bag, and shake to mix. Add turnips to bag, and shake until evenly coated with spices. Spread turnips in a single layer on prepared baking sheets. Bake in upper and lower thirds of oven until crisp on outside and tender on inside, about 30 minutes. Because turnips don’t have the starch content that potatoes do, these fries won’t be as crisp as potato fries. But they’re delicious all the same. Serve immediately. *Allrecipes Magazine*
