In this healthy root vegetable recipe, we take the flavor of salt-and-vinegar chips and apply them to turnips. We found that simmering the turnips with vinegar before roasting infuses the flavor throughout. Try this technique with other root vegetables and potatoes too.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

  • Combine turnips, water and 1/2 cup vinegar in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the turnips are just fork-tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and pat dry.

  • Transfer the turnips to a large bowl and toss with oil and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Spread out on a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast, stirring once, until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes.

  • Toss the turnips with the remaining 1 tablespoon vinegar and 1/4 teaspoon salt and serve topped with chives.

Super fun alternative to chips and fries. I think it doesn't need tossing with a full tablespoon of vinegar at the end though- left them a bit wet. Probably will sprinkle with vinegar and salt at the end instead next time! Read More
