Low Carb French Fries❗❗❗

We have tried french fries on low carb!!!!!

In stead of potatoes, we tried turnips. One turnip served us both a large helping of fries. Tasted very close to french fried potatoes and whereas white potatoes have 10-17 grams of carbs per 100 grams* of potatoes (depending on the type of potato) turnips contain 3.9 grams of carbs per 100 grams of turnip.

I fried the turnips which I cut into french fries like potatoes, in lard. McDonald’s used to use lard for their great fries when the company started up. We found the lard fried the turnips just right and the taste was lovely.

Our french fries yen is quenches!

We purchased kohlrabi as well to try as french fries. If I can find parsley root, I’d try that. It’s not quite 2 grams of carbs.

This site speaks to the vegetables you can use to make fries. It also gives the carbs for each vegetable. http://ketodietapp.com/Blog/post/2013/05/08/Low-carb-French-Fries

If you miss french fries, you should try these!

They were great! We’ll have these with some frequency.




*100 grams is equal to about 3.5 ounces
