Why I Love This Recipe

This is a low carb way of having a the sweet potato taste


Ingredients You'll Need

4 small turnips, peeled and quartered
4 tbs butter
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. red pepper
1/8 tsp ginger
2 tbs. sugar twin brown sugar
dash allspice


Directions

Preheat over tp 400. In small cup/bowl place all ingredients and microwave ~30 sec (til butter melts). Wisk to make sure sugar is dissolved. I used a loaf pan as all the turnips fit snuggly in one layer. Pour the butter mixture over the turnips and coat. Bake for 35 minutes, turning every 10 minutes to coat/crisp. Remove and enjoy. Texture reminded me of a steak fry, (slightly crispy outside, soft inside) and the brown sugar provided just enough sweetness to remind me of sweet potatoes.
