I was getting tired of eating the same sides with every meal. Green beans, broccoli, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, etc. I wanted to try different veggies so the last time I went to the grocery store I bought turnips. I don’t know if I’ve ever had them before; I know I’ve never made them before and I was not concerned about whether or not I would like them because I’m not really a picky eater.

I found a few recipes online and settled on roasting them in the oven (sprinkled with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Roast on 400 degrees for about 40mins). The results? They tasted undone, like they needed more time. And I know what you’re saying, “why not cook them a little longer.” I did, I gave them an extra 10mins but they were starting to burn.
I think I might give them another chance, I thought about what they would taste like if they were mashed like potatoes, and seasoned differently with gravy. I’ll report back.
