Description: The one thing I really miss is fries. I got my kids fries at Wendy's and they looked so good. I didn't have any but I came home and searched the net to find a recipe for low carb fries that I could have. This looks like it's might just be it.
Ingredients: 8 medium turnips (about 2 1/2 pounds)
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon Splenda
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg or 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt (sea salt works best)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Olive oil spray
Lime juice


How To Prepare: Peel the turnips with a vegetable peeler, slice and cut into 2 1/2-by-1/2-inch sticks. Pour 1/2 cup heavy cream into a large bowl and place the turnip sticks into the cream. Fill bowl with cold water until the turnips are completely covered. Add 1 teaspoon Splenda. Swirl a bit to mix and allow to sit in cream mixture for 10-15 minutes. (This cream-soaking step removes the "bite" flavor of the turnips, leaving them with a milder, more potato-like flavor.) Rinse in colander with cool water and pat dry.


Preheat oven to 425°F.
Combine turnip sticks with the nutmeg, pepper, sea salt and Parmesan cheese in a large plastic (Ziploc-type) bag. Seal the bag and shake well to coat the turnip sticks.


Spray 2 large baking sheets lightly with the olive oil spray. Spread the turnips in a single layer on the sheets and spray again with the olive oil.


Bake in a preheated 425°F oven for 15 minutes. Turn the fries over and continue baking for 15 minutes, until the fries are tender and golden in color. Serve hot with a sprinkle of lime juice.




Number of Servings: Makes 8 servings.
