Crispy Potatoes and Turnips
This recipe goes beyond French fries. Roasting rather than frying the potatoes lends flavor without adding excess fat calories.
- 3 turnips, peeled and cubed
- 3 russet potatoes, scrubbed and cubed
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 4 Tbs olive oil
- 1 tsp dried rosemary
- Salt and pepper to taste (sea salt if on a corn-free diet*)
- Heat oven to 375°F (190°C). Toss turnips, potatoes and garlic with olive oil until coated and season with rosemary, salt and pepper. Scatter vegetables in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake about 30 minutes to 1 hour, or until browned yet tender inside. Turn the vegetables occasionally with a spatula or by shaking the pan.
* Allergy notes: People following a corn-free diet should avoid iodized salt since it contains dextrose, which should be avoided by those allergic to corn.
