Root Vegetable Fries

on February 11, 2017

I love root vegetables, especially when oven roasted. You can quarter and roast as normal, but if you want a browner version, a bit of crisp, try making fries. You can deep fry, but the oven version is quick and easy.

For oven-fried turnips,sweet potatoes, rutabaga, beets, carrots:

Preheat the oven to 400F degrees.

–Cut the veggies into fries.
–Toss the cut veggies with olive oil (or fat of your choice) and rosemary.

opt: a quick trick, to speed up oven time, microwave for 2-3 minutes to soften.

— Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or rub a non-stick baking sheet with a little oil.  Spread the cut fries in a layer–don’t crowd, and sprinkle with salt.

— Bake on an upper shelf for about 25-30 minutes

opt: Turn the veggies for more even browning.

Dip in homemade mayonnaise or aioli.
