Roasted Turnips w/ Maple-Mustard Glaze
Serves: 8-10
  • 4 lbs (approx 2kg) turnips, peeled, and cut into 1-inch wedges
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons coarse-grain brown mustard
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  1. In a large pot, place the turnips, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Cook the turnips in boiling water for 5 minutes to soften. Drain well and set aside.
  2. Lightly oil (or spray with a light mist of oil) a large baking dish and set aside.
  3. In a saucepan, place the maple syrup, mustard, sunflower oil, toasted sesame oil, salt, and pepper, and simmer over low heat for 3 minutes to blend the flavors.
  4. Place the drained turnips in the prepared baking dish, pour the warm maple-mustard mixture over the turnips, and sprinkle with the fresh thyme.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees, basting the turnips with the sauce every 20-30 minutes to evenly coat them, and bake for 1-1½ hours or until they are golden brown and very tender.
