So the first part of meatless cooking is, of course, like any cooking. Take this Martha Stewart recipe I just made:

Roasted turnips with Parmesan

  • 2 pounds turnips (about 4 medium), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan (1/2 ounce) (Do not forget)

Preheat oven to 475 degrees. On a rimmed baking sheet, combine turnips, cayenne, nutmeg, and oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss well to coat. Sprinkle with Parmesan and toss gently to combine. Arrange turnips in a single layer and roast until golden on both sides, 25 to 30 minutes, flipping halfway through.

25 minutes did it for me. Terrific.

Peeling them is totally optional. I tried some with the skin removed, some with it left on. I like the skin-on better.
