Crispy, Deliciousy, Turnip Fries

3 Large Turnips (I had two ginormous ones from my CSA on hand)
1/4 cup olive oil
Spice Blend: whatever you feel like (we used smoked paprika, cumin, cayenne, and a generous heap of salt)

Preheat oven to 425 F. Wash well, and trim turnips. Slice into 1/2" X 1/2" strips. Place all ingredients in a large plastic ziploc, and shake well. Lay in a single layer on a baking sheet, spread out a little (we used two baking sheets). If they're too close, they will steam each other and become mushy instead of crispy. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until golden, crispy, and a taste test says they are delicious. Allow to cool slightly so you don't burn your tongue (oops).

Added 1/4 cup nutritional yeast and some smoked paprika to the spice blend, and left out the cumin- was delicious!
