These were great. I'm not crazy about french fries so was happy to find this. I did toss the turnip pieces in the oil first and then in the spices. It seemed to me if i tried to brush on the oil it would brush off all the spices and cheese. It worked great. Thanks for a great recipe Geema.

Really enjoyed this turnip recipe! They were zippy , a nice addition to my dinner and very different from my regular mashed carrots & turnips. Followed the recipe except when it came to the baking. I used my baking stone with a piece of parchment paper on it had oven at 375f. This way I did not need any oil and they came out golden and delicious - This is a real keeper Thanks Geema

Unusual recipe, and really good! I used rutabaga instead of turnip; I adore rutabaga. I think I went a little overboard on the pepper, as measuring is not one of my strong points, but the flavor was very nice. Watch these in the oven toward the end, mine were on the verge of getting a little too cooked. Very yummy recipe, thanks!

The pepper-lime-parmesan taste is great - but it is CRUCIAL that you do not cut your turnips too small! I made this mistake and ended up with turnip charcoal. Just do as Geema says. The salvageable ones were quite tasty... I wish myself better luck next time!

This is a very enjoyable way to eat turnips. My ancestors in Poland survived cold winters eating turnips but I don't think they ate anything this flavorful.

This recipe was made for me! I'm Somersizing at the moment and potatoes are out, and boy, do I miss them. But with these turnip fries, I don't miss them so much now. It's not exactly the same as a potato fry, but it's delicious all the same. The turnip has a slight sweet taste, and drenching it in olive oil and Parmesan cheese can only improve on it's flavor. I left out the lemon juice and nutmeg, added a healthy dash of Hungarian paprika and za'atar. The recipe says this makes 4 servings, but two of us just inhaled these in one sitting. Geema, these rock!

These were not a hit with anyone in our house. DH is the only one who ate his share. One taste was enough for everyone else. The pepper and Parmesan sounded like a good combo. Maybe it was the nutmeg that turned us off. We love to try new recipes, and everyone's taste is different. This one just wasn't for our family.

I didn't care for these but my husband ate them all... I thought they were kind of bitter and bland even with the nutmeg and pepper

Not a big hit with the kids or hubby. They were ok, but not great. Maybe would have been better if I had lime juice...
