Now, please don't go gifting me weird things because you think I'll eat anything I'm given. I can and will draw the line...somewhere, anyway.
I didn't go searching for recipes. Instead I thought, "Well, they're a root vegetable, so they're likely good roasted," and left it at that. I scrubbed them, cut off the tails and tops and diced them.
Then, I tossed them with olive oil, salt and pepper. I spread them on a greased cookie sheet and roasted them at 400 degrees until they were soft, tossing them once or twice.
They were delicious.
They reminded us of brussels sprouts (which we like when they aren't overly bitter). The roasting process gave them a wonderful touch of sweetness...my. Needless to say, we were sad when we hit the bottom of that bowl after making them twice.
Turnips just might be in our garden line-up for next year. Are they in yours?
