Low Carb Turnip Fries

Photo taken at yesterday’s dinner with my Best Burger Ever Recipe.

I love celery root fries, however the problem with celery root fries is that celery root is not always so readily available.  Whenever I want to make celery root fries, I have to drive to my nearest Whole Foods Market, which is a bit of a hike from my house.

On the other hand, turnips are always available at my local supermarket. After many failed attempts to get turnips to taste more like french fries, I think I have finally got it.  So, I am proud to present to you the best turnip french fry recipe! Now please keep in mind that turnips do have a slightly sweet taste, but nothing that a little ketchup won’t cover.

So how many carbs do turnips have? Here’s is what I have found.

1 large Turnip has         8.47 Net Carbs

1 Medium Turnip has  5.64 Net Carbs

1 Small Turnip has     2.82 Net Carbs

The carb count for this recipe will depend greatly on the size of turnip you are using.
Here are the Ingredients for these turnip fries

4 Medium Turnips

1 teaspoon of better than bouillon or (1/4 cube of chicken stock cube of your choice)

1/2 teaspoon of cajun seasoning

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese

Serves 4

5.6 Net Carbs Per Serving

  1. How long do you “fry” these in the oven? They look delicious, and I have fresh turnips from my farm share picked today!

    Hi Jay, I love your recipe. I made it with a few substitutions due to my meal plan. I used chicken bouillon, Pam spray for oil. For seasonings, I used pepper, garlic & onions & roasted vegetable spice blends. I never thought of making Turnip Fries until I came across your website on Youtube. Thank you.

    Jodi, I have been away traveling for the past week so I am so sorry for the late reply. You should bake these at 425 degrees for about 30-35 minutes. Please remember to grease the baking tray first before placing them on the tray, because they will stick to the tray if your don’t. I hope this helps : )

    Could you please tell me at what temperature you set your oven? I’m going to try this for supper tomorrow along with teriyaki venison burgers! Can’t wait!
