VEGGIES: Paprika Oven Roasted Turnips

Our last CSA box of the year included a turnip. I had never eaten one before, at least not on purpose. I had absolutely no idea what to do with it!

I decided to treat it like any other vegetable and roast it with some of our favorite spices! Paprika gives nice flavor without much spice. I can’t handle really spicy food so it is perfect for me. And I use sea salt and garlic powder in just about everything. We LOVE garlic! This recipe is very easy and they¬†make a great side dish to any main course!

Also isn’t this platter super cute? I picked it up at our local kitchen shop, Kitchen a la Mode.
