Sometimes simplicity is best.

Garlic & Roasted Butter Turnips

by Dishing Up the Dirt

Prep Time: 10 minutes  |  Cook Time: 30 minutes  |  Serves: 4


  • 2 bunches of salad turnips or whatever hearty vegetables you have on hand (about 2 1/2 pounds with the greens removed)
  • 8-10 unpeeled garlic cloves
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 10-12 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted*
  • salt and pepper to taste

* Use Roasted Garlic, Basil, and Parsley butter to make this extra amazing.


  1. Preheat the oven to 400.
  2. Remove the greens from the turnips (save them for another use) and slice the larger turnips into quarters and the smaller turnips in half. They should be about 1/4 inch thick in diameter.
  3. On a rimmed baking sheet toss the sliced turnips with the garlic cloves, shallots and thyme. Drizzle with the melted butter (melt the butter on a stovetop) and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Place in the oven and bake until the turnips are tender and lightly browed, about 30-40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before serving.
