Turnip fries

Now that fall is officially here, roots and tubers are turning up everywhere at markets. I HAD to find something to do with turnips. No one ever uses them, but they're a vegetable, so how bad can they be?

Try this for a quick, healthy finger food:
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Line cookie sheet with aluminum foil
  • Peel turnips and slice like French fries
  • Toss in a large bowl with olive oil
  • Put fries in a one-gallon freezer Ziploc and generously sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and dill (salt to your liking)
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes until crispy
WARNING! These turnip fries are addicting, so they're best shared with friends.

Or maybe I'll make some tonight as I indulge in my just-purchased Sex and the City movie...
