Low Carb Smokey Roasted Turnips

11 ratings

Turnips are an excellent low carb side dish! They have the meaty feel of a potato without the extra carbs. For this dish, turnips are cubed and tossed in garlic, olive oil, and smoked paprika before being roasted. The result is a delicious side dish or snack when you’re sick of salads and greens and want something that feels a little more substantial. Enjoy!

Recipe Steps

steps 5

1 h 5 min

  • Step 1

    Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut the ends off of your turnips and peel them. Lay them flat on a cutting board and cut the ends off of them so they form the shape of a square or rectangular.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Cut them in strips and then cut the strips so you have a bunch of 1” cubes when you’re finished.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Toss the cubes in oil, then add salt, smoked paprika, black pepper and garlic powder.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Lay the cubes out on a parchment-covered baking sheet. They’ll roast best if you spread them out so they are not touching or barely touching.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    Roast in the oven for 30 minutes. Flip the cubes over with a spatula and roast for another 20 minutes, or until the start to brown slightly. Enjoy!

    I have now made these several times and they are definitely, definitely a keeper. Last time I prepped them and basically marinated them for what ended up being a couple of days in the fridge. Air fried them, and oh wow they were so good!

      Air fried them to perfection! For an Air Fryer set at 390° bake for 10 mins tossing half way through. Perfect!!!

        These were delicious. Only one thing. After cooking them, they shrunk dramatically and only filled a little more than two cups worth. The recipe says it’s 1 cup a serving... but after cooking them, you would probably have to divide them into six groups to Have 6 servings.

          Great side dish. Only wish they would have had a more browned outside.
