Crispy Turnip Fries

These "fries" are delicious and flavorful.  I make Spicy Parsnip Fries which are very similar and also delicious but different enough to keep both recipes to accompany different types of meals.

3 pounds turnips, peeled
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1. Preheat oven to 450, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly grease. 

2. Peel the turnips and cut into french fry-sized sticks, about 1/3 by 4 inches. 

3. Place into a large bowl and toss with the oil to coat. 

4. Mix the seasonings in a small bowl and then sprinkle on the turnips and toss with a rubber spatula. 

5. Next sprinkle on the parmesan cheese and again, toss to coat. 

6. Spread the turnips out onto the baking sheet.  

7. Bake in preheated oven until the outside is crispy and the inside is tender, about 20 minutes.  (Turn once or twice.)

8. Check on them often, they can get dark quickly. 

9. Serve immediately.  

Servings: 6

Notes: You can make these with parsnips also or even a mixture of half of each parsnips and turnips. 

You can make these more like steak fries by cutting the turnips into 1/2 inch wedges and baking at 475 degrees for 20 - 30 minutes, flipping half way through.
