Tasty Turnip Fries

Tasty Turnip Fries


  • 1 medium turnip (1 lb.), cut into french-fry strips
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • Cooking spray


  1. Put turnip strips into a large bowl and toss with oil to coat.
  2. If you have a shaker: fill with cheese, spices, and salt.  Shake over oiled strips and toss so that strips are evenly coated.
  3. If you don’t have a shaker: put cheese, spices, and salt into a plastic bag.  Shake to mix.  Add oiled turnip strips and shake until evenly coated.
  4. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  5. Spread strips out onto the baking sheet.
  6. Bake in 425º F oven until outside is crispy and inside is tender when a fork is inserted, about 20-25 minutes.  Steam will pour out of the strips near the end; don’t worry; you’re not setting them on fire.
  7. Good hot and cool.

For Weight Watchers: 2 points for per 1 lb. turnip on both the Points and PointsPlus plans.
