Miso Turnips

*inspired by a recipe from Andrea Bemis who was inspired by Gwyneth Paltrow’s recipe.

Serves 4 as a side

Prep :10 mins

Cook time : 25 mins


1 bunch turnips, (6-7 Japanese salad turnips) small ones left whole and larger ones sliced in half or quarters

olive oil


1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1 tablespoon white miso paste

1 tablespoon pure maple syrup (or honey)

2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds (optional)

Spring onion and coriander for garnish (optional)



Preheat the oven to 190C.

Toss the turnips with olive oil and salt on a rimmed baking sheet and roast for about 15-20 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt together the butter, miso and maple syrup over medium heat.

Coat the turnips with the miso mixture and broil until beginning to brown, 3-5 minutes.

Garnish with toasted sesame seeds, if desired.

*These are fairly sweet so feel free to adjust the seasoning to suit your taste.

**I think this same preparation would be great on green beans as well.
