I am all about roasting all the root vegetables. I am also all about using all the seasonings in my kitchen. Want to make eating healthy taste yummy? Add spices! I grew up eating so many different spices because my mom was an experimental cook. Fun fact, I used to love smelling spices. Once at an Indian restaurant I thought it would be a good idea to smell/snort cayenne pepper….it did not go well. Another fun fact, if you snort cayenne you can squeeze lemon wedges into your nose to stop the burning.
Turnips are a super versatile vegetable and take on the flavor of the spices you douse them in. This barbecue seasoning is from my BBQ chicken sandwich recipe and adds so much flavor.
