French fries are filled with both carbohydrates (from the potatoes) and fat (from the oil) and while fat may be green-lit on keto, carbs definitely are not.
Many roots and tubers are full of starch, disqualifying them for keto dieters. So does following the ketogenic diet mean you have to say goodbye to french fries forever? No, there are plenty of vegetable alternatives to potatoes that can be used to make low carb fries. Jicama, turnips, and radishes are all common non-starchy vegetable alternatives used to make keto fries. Rather than using on of these, however, we've found that rutabagas are perfect for making keto french fries. They are naturally low in carbohydrates but don't have the same bitter taste like some other vegetable-based french fries.
Rutabaga can make the perfect low carb french fry to satisfy your cravings, without any weird texture or flavor changes!

Note: You can cut the rutabaga into whatever shape you'd like, but specifically using a french fry peeler will help. Because a french fry cutter created jagged edges along with the fries, this increases the surface area, allowing more parts to get crispy. If you do not have one of these peelers or attachments, do not worry. You can still cut the rutabaga into fry-like shapes and enjoy your delicious low carb fries all the same!

Yields4 Servings
Ingredients
 1 medium rutabaga
 ¼ cup avocado or olive oil
 1 tsp salt
 Optional: Try adding Creole seasoning or season to taste
Oven Directions
1

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

2

Peel the rutabaga and slice horizontally into circles that are approximately 1/4 inches in thickness.

3

If you have a french fry cutter, use that to cut the rutabaga into fry shapes. If not, stack several of the circles on top of one another and slice the rutabaga into sticks or fry shapes.

4

Line a baking sheet with foil and place the rutabaga fries on top.

5

Pour the oil and seasonings over the low carb fries and toss them until coated.

6

Rearrange the fries so that they are in a single layer, about an inch apart.

7

Bake the low carb fries for approximately 40 minutes or until the outside is crispy and the inside is soft.

8

Optional: For an extra crispy fry, try broiling your low carb fries for an additional 1-2 minutes, making sure to keep a careful eye on them so that they do not burn.

Air Fryer Directions
9

Follow all of the same prep-work directions as above.

10

Place the fries in your air fryer, spaced out, and not overlapping.
Note: Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may have to cook in several batches.

11

Cook at 400°F for 10 minutes.

12

Flip the low carb fries or shake the basket (depending on the type of air fryer you have) and continue cooking at 400°F for an additional 5-10 minutes or until the fries are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

13

Additional toppings: Try topping your low carb fries with Parmesan cheese, olive oil, Italian seasoning and sea salt for an Italian seasoned fry. Add creole seasoning and hot sauce for a firey fry or simply add cheddar cheese, bacon, and jalapenos for a classic fully loaded fry.
