I got a recipe off the internet for "rutabaga fries" (yes the waxy vegetable, easy to peel!)...1/3 the carbs of a potato, and 1/2 the fat! Plus, you can slice them similar to McD's fries (not that I crave them anymore, but such a treat to have them look that way!) They are also only "fries" in name, as they are prepared--oven roasted, and actually taste healthier
Lots of variations to try...I can "trick" myself into thinking I'm indulging!
Here's the recipe:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Slice into fries
Spray cooking sheet and fries with cooking spray (or toss in olive oil) and season with sea salt, pepper and chili powder (or cayenne, garlic)
Flip fries to coat and bake for 15 min
Flip and bake for another 10–20 min
