Peppery Turnip "Fries"

Peppery Turnip "Fries" created by cookinmom76

I confess to being turnip ignorant. It seems a shame to let a perfectly good vegetable go uneaten for lack of knowledge. Then I found this recipe in "Yamuna's Table", and I became a turnip convert. Try it and join me in having a new appreciation for this humble vegetable.

    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...

    Pretty good for turnips. I was able to get our neighbors four year old to eat a couple of them. We dipped them in ketchup but sour cream and honey-dijon mustard with some cayenne would have been even better.
