  • 2 pounds turnips peeled past the skin and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons ghee or fat of choice
  • Diamond Crystal kosher salt 
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat your oven to 425°F and toss your cut turnip cubes with melted ghee, salt, and pepper. Don’t worry if the ghee clumps up on your cold turnip cubes. It’s annoying but they’ll still roast nicely.
  • Place the turnip cubes in a single layer on a foil-lined baking tray and put them in the oven for 20-25 minutes, flipping the cubes halfway through. The finished turnips should be nicely browned and tender.
