I tried something new this week! I roasted turnips.
I've made turnip greens multiple times, but this time I wanted to roast the vegetable. I'm not sure if this is something southern. Do y'all eat turnips?
I washed and peeled them. Then I went hunting for a recipe so I'd know about how long to roast them. My go-to is to roast veggies at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. But I wasn't sure about these.
I found this recipe at Martha Stewart's site: Roasted Turnips with Parmesan. I changed it up a bit...
4 turnips, washed, peeled and cut into thin wedges
Toss with olive oil
Sprinkle with seasoning salt and pepper and toss to coat
Sprinkle with fresh shredded parmesan cheese
Bake 20-25 minutes (check to make sure cheese doesn't burn). Mine were a little overdone but still tasted good.
These could have used the cayenne pepper the recipe called for. They were a little bland even with the cheese. So I'll follow directions next time! :) Still, it was a nice alternative to potatoes.
