A low-carb alternative to potatoes! Remember, good-quality turnips will be very firm, smooth-skinned and heavy for their size. The coloring will be light-purple on the top, fading to bright-white at the bottom.
- 4 - 5 medium turnips
- Cooking spray (Pam or alternative)
- 2 tbps of mixed seasonings (salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, Cajun seasoning)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel and French cut the turnips into small size wedges. Place the wedges on a cookie sheet that has been lined with foil and sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Spray the turnips with a light coating of cooking spray.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until tender turning halfway in the cooking process.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder or any type of Cajun seasoning. Load it up with ketchup and a little Tabasco or nothing at all and YUM. These are a great alternative to those staying away from potatoes, like those on low carbohydrate diets or diabetics.
