Roasted Turnips and Carrots

Every week, it seems I am treated to heaps of fresh, orgainic, and super-local carrots and turnips from my CSA Box. And I'm not complaining at all; I have learned a bunch of new, delicoiius ways to cook these tasty root vegetables.

One of my favorite ways has been roasting them with a touch of olive oil, garlic, and onions. They both caramelize wonderfully when roasted at high temperature, bringing a delectable sweetness to the earthy flavors of carrots and turnips.

This makes an awesome side dish, but it is also great as a meal basis when served on top of a bed of greens with quinoa or brown rice. Also makes a great breakfast when served with a fried egg.


  • 1 dozen small turnips, cut into crosswise slices
  • 4 medium carrots, cut into crosswise slices
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 435 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the turnips, onion, and carrots in a 9 x 9 baking dish, stir.
  2. In a small bowl , stir together the minced garlic, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Pour onto the vegetables and stir to ensure everything is coated in the oil mixture.
  3. Bake for 25 minutes and allow to cool for 3-5 minutes before serving warm.

I love roasted vegetables. They tend to go well with everything. I never thought of serving them with eggs for breakfast. That's a good idea

I still think that the idea of a CSA box is really awesome. It is funny that all of these new mailorder items are available these days like Hello Fresh and stuff like that, but many people probably don't take the time to see if there are CSA boxes available around them. I am definitely going to have to see if something similar is available around where I live.
