Quick Facts

Servings: 4
Prep Time: 10 min.
Cook Time: 1 hr. 30 min.
Total: 1 hr. 40 min.
This recipe goes beyond French fries. Roasting rather than frying the potatoes lends flavor without adding excess fat calories.


  • 3 turnips, peeled and cubed
  • 3 russet potatoes, scrubbed and cubed
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 4 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste (sea salt if on a corn-free diet*)


  • Heat oven to 375°F (190°C). Toss turnips, potatoes and garlic with olive oil until coated and season with rosemary, salt and pepper. Scatter vegetables in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake about 30 minutes to 1 hour, or until browned yet tender inside. Turn the vegetables occasionally with a spatula or by shaking the pan.

* Allergy notes: People following a corn-free diet should avoid iodized salt since it contains dextrose, which should be avoided by those allergic to corn.
