Today is the second time Elviira of Low-carb, So Simple, one the most popular low-carb blogs, has been guest posting for me. As always, her recipe is delicious, easy to follow and contains only a few common ingredients. Her first recipe was Green Beans with Lemon and Almonds - one of my favourite side dishes!
This healthy and spicy dish is a must for all who love fries – and who of us wouldn’t love! Turnip is a perfect replacement for starchy potato, making also wonderful fries. Moreover, you can create endless variations on turnip fries. When I make turnip fries, I always experiment with different spices and seasonings. I’ve posted a basic version of turnip fries on my blog earlier this year. Also my new cookbook has a tasty variation on the fries. I often use a local country turnip variety, which is flat in shape and mild in taste. Those country turnips are also featured in the photos below.
For these Taco Turnip Fries, use homemade taco seasoning for the best taste and the healthiest result, as the commercial seasonings tend to contain sugar or unhealthy food additives. Homemade taco seasoning is easy and quick to make. The version below is relatively mild, since I wanted to create a more kid-friendly variation. However, feel free to use hotter chili or add some cayenne pepper for spicier taste. This seasoning mix is also salt-free, as it is easier to adjust the saltiness to your liking when you actually use the seasoning.
Serving size about 8 fries
