Second, is roasted turnips. Preheat oven to 400 f. Coat whole turnips in olive oil and place them on a baking sheet or pan. Put them in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until they are lightly browned and soft through and through. Remove them from oven, salt and season to taste, and serve. Melt butter over them for extra flavor. For an even smoother texture, put them in a food processor with a half cup of milk or broth for creamy whipped turnips!
