Non Potato Cajun Fries

We all love French fries once a while. Crispy, thin, tender inside, with a side of ketchup or mayo. Served either in a brown bag at Five Guys or on a nice plate in a restaurant… I am salivating just thinking of it!

Here is a way to satisfy that potato fries craving without actually having potato fries!

You’ve heard of rutabaga?

Neither had I.

It’s a kind of turnip that, when you chop it, season it and pop in the oven, looks just like potato fries! Much less starchy, just as delicious! But remember, I am in no way to stop having real fries once a while…just not everyday!

This works really well with parsnip as well.

To make a nice batch, you will need:

2 or 3 rutabaga, washed

Salt

Pepper

Cajun Spices

Garlic Powder

2 tbsp Olive oil

Sauce:

1/2 cup Greek yogurt

Garlic powder

Cajun Spices

Preheat oven to 450 F.

Slice your rutabaga in a French Fry form. Fat or slim, it depends on your preference! Just try to make them all relatively the same size. 

Place them in a bowl and add the olive oil. Toss them well so that they all have some oil on them. 

Season with salt, pepper, and of course, the cajun spices and the garlic powder!

Bake for about 30 minutes, or until they  seem ready to you. While they bake, prepare your dipping sauce by adding the spices to the yogurt. 

Serve with the dipping sauce and enjoy!
