Honey Roasted Turnips


2 Tbsp oil

1/4 cup honey

1 bunch turnips

Salt and pepper to taste

Optional – 1 tsp dried thyme or ¼ tsp cinnamon or nutmeg


Remove turnip tops, wash and cut into wedges.  Put turnips in a bowl and stir through with olive oil and honey.  Add to an oven proof pan.  Sprinkle over salt and pepper and thyme or cinnamon/nutmeg.  Toss vegetables so well covered with seasoning.  Bake in oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 30-40 minutes.  Turn 3-4 times during the cooking process to ensure they are cooking evenly.  Once the vegetables are soft through this can be served as a warm roast salad, or as a side. You can also add other chopped root veges to this dish, such as carrots, parsnips and beetroot to give more variety.
