Best Keto French Fry

I’ve tried to make fries out of so many low carb vegetables. I love these zucchini fries! But they feel more like a fun side dish that a french fry copycat.

Out of all the keto vegetables I tried, rutabagas are the winner. They hold their shape, get crispy edges when roasted, and taste really similar to a sweet potato!

Turnips were my second favorite, but they get a little wiggly. They don’t hold that fry shape when you pick them up. But have a flavor more similar to white potato.

Crispy Keto French Fries

I like to bake my french fries in the oven. It’s much easier than the air fryer, plus I can cook a lot more at once.

To get them extra crispy, I love using this sheet pan with its wire rack over it. It allows the air to circulate all around and prevent them from getting soggy.

Recipe Notes

You can make this in your air fryer! At about 380ºF for 20-30 minutes.
I've found tons of differing carb counts for rutabagas, but the most consistent was around 5-6 net carbs for a medium rutabaga (about 1 cup worth)
