You’ve heard of honey-glazed carrots…why not turnips with a maple glaze? The sweet-smoky syrup takes roasted turnips to a new dimension for the perfect autumn side dish.
- 6 to 8 medium size turnips peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
- 2 Tbs. canola or light olive oil
- Salt to taste
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 2 Tbs. butter melted
- Pinch of nutmeg
- Pinch of chipotle chili powder optional
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Lightly oil a large shallow roasting pan or half sheet pan (tip: lining the pan with nonstick aluminum foil eases cleanup).
- In a large bowl, combine the turnips, oil and salt to taste. Toss to coat. Arrange in a single layer in the pan.
- Roast for about 15 minutes, until the turnips are tender, stirring or shaking the pan occasionally for even cooking.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the maple syrup, butter, nutmeg and chili powder (if using). Pour over the turnips. Roast for another 10 to 15 minutes until the turnips are well browned and tender.
- Serve hot.
