Miso and Maple Roasted Turnips

Miso and Maple Roasted Turnips

  • 1 bunch of hakurei or purple-top turnips, cut in half (stems okay to leave on)
  • Avocado or rice bran oil (or another oil with a high smoke point)
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter or olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds (optional) 


Preheat the oven to 425F.

Toss the turnips with olive oil and salt in a bowl and transfer to a baking pan. Roast for about 15-20 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt together the butter/olive oil, miso and maple syrup over medium heat.

Coat the turnips with the miso mixture and broil until beginning to brown, 3-5 minutes.

Garnish with toasted sesame seeds (optional)

Serve as a side dish or on top of a rice and veggie bowl!
