Roasted Turnips with Parmesan


  • 2 pounds turnips (about 4 medium), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch wedges 

  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper 

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper 

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan (1/2 ounce) 


  1.  Preheat oven to 475 degrees.

  2. On a rimmed baking sheet, combine turnips, cayenne, nutmeg, and oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss well to coat.

  3. Sprinkle with Parmesan and toss gently to combine. Arrange turnips in a single layer and roast until golden on both sides, 25 to 30 minutes, flipping halfway through.
