A Girl & Her Food: Turnip Fries


Turnip Fries

This morning I stopped by the Wicker Park Farmers Market with my boxers, Stanley "Pup" and Nelle. We arrived at the market around closing time, so we were only able to shop at the Nichols Farm stand. I bought radishes, mizuna, tuscan kale, shelling peas, fingerling potatoes, squash and their blossoms...... and of course TURNIPS! 

Did you know that eating one medium turnip will provide over half of your daily vitamin C needs?

Turnip Fries 

2 turnips, washed and peeled
Olive Oil
Fresh ground pepper (season to taste preference) 
Kosher Salt (season to taste preference) 


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with a split mat, parchment paper or foil. Using a sharp knife, cut the turnips into equally sized fry pieces. Layer the turnips on the lined baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and seasonings. Mix well. Bake for about 30 minutes, making sure to toss after 12 minutes, so that they bake evenly. Once baked, remove from oven, and serve with some ketchup. I love Red 78  all natural ketchup and it is made here in Chicago!
