Crispy Potatoes and Turnips

Recipe Image

This recipe goes beyond French fries. Roasting rather than frying the potatoes lends flavor without adding excess fat calories.

Preparation facts

Cooking Time: 1 hr 30 min

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 1 hr 40 min

Yield: 4 servings


3 turnips, peeled and cubed

3 russet potatoes, scrubbed and cubed

2 cloves garlic, chopped

4 Tbs (60mL) olive oil

1 tsp (2g) 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.
