What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Turnips and Roasted Sweet Potatoes! Here’s a little twist on adding turnips to your menu. When seasoned and mixed with other root vegetables, like sweet potatoes, the somewhat bland flavor of the turnip becomes robust and savory. You’ll find yourself serving them more often.
TURNIPS & ROASTED SWEET POTATOES
3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges
4 medium turnips, peeled and cut into chunks
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat oven to 425°. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix well until vegetables are evenly coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for one hour. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray. Spread vegetables into single layer. Avoid contact. Bake about 40 minutes or until tender and slightly browned.
Serving suggestion: For a creamy dip, mix Greek yogurt with fresh onion chives. It will seem like a mild onion dip, but with a much lighter flavor.
