I’ve developed recipes around turnips before for the blog. You can find one of them here. I return to turnips for a few reasons, they are in season all year (although they are yummiest in spring and fall), they are inexpensive, and they are sulfur-rich, which aids the body’s ability to detoxify. In this recipe I did something a little unusual, I decided to combine the earthy flavor of turnips with the sweetness of apples and the very faint woodsy flavor of lavender. The whole dish is accented with thyme and a tiny bit of garlic. It smells divine while it’s roasting!
- 4 turnips, ends trimmed, chopped
- 2 sweet apples, cut into wedges
- 2 tbsp solid cooking fat, melted
- ½ tsp lavender
- 1 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp fresh minced thyme
- 1 tsp sea salt
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Toss turnip, apple wedges, and seasonings in melted fat to coat evenly.
- Roast for 30 minutes.
This vegetable side dish would be great served with lamb chops or beef steaks.
