Today I was part of the best upsell I’ve ever witnessed at a farmers market. Seriously the folks at Cargile Farms in Mexia, TX (bonus points if you know to pronounce that meh-hee-ya) know what they are doing.
I walked away with dill, cilantro, arugula, carrots, lettuce, spinach, another type of lettuce, chow chow, jalapeño relish and a poop ton of turnips for only $40!
Now, there is a reason that turnips are prevalent this time of year. FULL of immune boosting vitamin C and fiber during a time when fresh veggies weren’t, traditionally, as readily available. So, while this is the perfect veggie….
Aside from saving the greens and cooking them up I have NO FREAKING CLUE about what to do with turnips. So I did what any self-respecting woman would do and googled about 40 recipes until I found one 3 that I had some of the ingredients for and 8 combined them.
And this is my contribution to the internet and hopefully a saving grace for another person who got over excited at the farmers market and ended up with a ton of turnips.
Bonus facts about turnips: full of fiber and vitamin C (can’t beat that in cold season)
So without further ado… ROASTED TURNIPS
1) Start with some turnips.
2) Preheat oven to 425 F
3) turnips - Peel ‘em, dice ‘em and put ‘em in a bowl.
4) add oil of choice (we used bacon drippings and I swear you should do nothing less), onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper
5) spread them on a baking sheet
6) cook 30 min or until fork tender
Let me know if you liked the recipe!
Also don’t be afraid to serve it with ketchup for your kiddos. Mine ate it up!!
