If you are veggie-averse, puh-lease try making veggie fries using rutabagas, parsnips or turnips. I think they’re your best bet for falling in love with this nutritious food group.
Not only do they look a lot like real fries, but when dipped in ketchup they almost taste like them, too. Now, I’m not going to lie… There’s no replacing greasy, salty French fries, but these are an excellent healthy substitute.
Tonight I made a big batch of rutabaga fries to enjoy along with slow cooker BBQ chicken.
Of course I included a big blob of ketchup for fry-dippin’.
I enjoyed my slow cooker BBQ chicken on a whole wheat Joseph’s tortilla (half of it went directly into my mouth and eluded any pictures 😉 ).
Gotta love a well-rounded dinner! Veggies + Lean Protein + Whole Grains = Score!
In Other News…
Check out this ginormous carrot I bought at the Farmers’ Market.
I figured you guys would be interested in that because you’re just as oddly interested in weird produce as I am. 🙂 It’s almost the size of my arm! Carrot overload!!!
I’m off to do some laundry and dishes… fun night ahead. 😉
