what seasonings go well with turnips? i'm steaming them. there's a bitter bite to them that i want to mask a bit. i love penzy's so i'll take a rec if there's anything by them that would coordinate well.
Generally, whether I'm either steaming turnips or roasting them I just use Kosher salt and freshly ground Tellicherry pepper and EVolive oil. I'm thinking though, that a sprinkle of either garam masala or 5 spice powder might be tasty. Both are available from Penzey's.
I coat them with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic. Then roast them in a hot oven (400-450). They turn out great as the high heat seems to sweeten them a bit.
I toss them with olive oil lots of fresh thyme and roast them in a hot oven as well - tossing them several times in the roasting then in the last 10 mins I drizzle them with some pure maple syrup - about 3 tbsps? it's the only way my husband will eat them - also yummy for parsnips.
