Oven Fried Turnips


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)


Step 1

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.

Step 2

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until tender turning halfway in the cooking process.

Step 3

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.
