One of the most requested recipes from low carb dieters, especially when they just start, is replacements for their beloved potato.  In today's recipe, there is a simple replacement for an oven roasted potato wedge made with turnips instead of potatoes.  You could also use rutabaga, celery root, squash, or another firm vegetable instead.  Mix up the spices to create a flavor combination you love.  You can also microwave the turnips first for faster cooking.
