Turnips have a slightly bitter taste to them, so cooking the onions in this recipe will be the key to getting more of a sweet taste out of the dish! The bigger a turnip is, the more bitter it tastes so aim to choose ones from the market that are about the size of a tennis ball.

  • 2 lbs turnips with purple tops, cut into wedges
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter, cubed
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 shallots, sliced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Toss together the turnips, butter, thyme sprigs, shallots, olive oil and some salt and pepper in a 13x9" baking dish.
  3. Roast until the turnips begin to soften (approx. 30 minutes).
  4. Adjust the seasoning to taste and serve.
