Roasted Turnips with Shallots and Garlic

DSC_0316

I made a variation of this recipe the other day for lunch, and was very excited by the results.  It takes turnips which I typically eat in east asian cooking (what I would do for a dim sum turnip cake right now), but roasted like a typical western root vegetable dish. I had been seeing these turnips everywhere around Delhi and finally decided to give a new recipe a try.

What you’ll need:

  • 3 large white turnips – washed, peeled, and cut into 3/4 inch cubes
  • 3/4 cup of shallots, peeled
  • 4-6 peeled cloves of garlic, mashed (I usually just smash each clove with the side of my knife)
  • 3-5 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Cilantro/coriander for garnish
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees farenheit.  Toss cubed turnips, peeled shallots, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper in a baking sheet.  Roast for about 25 minutes, turning every 5-7 minutes.  Turnips and onions should brown and caramalize in the pan.  Remove from pan, garnish with chopped cilantro and serve immediately. Enjoy!
