Roasted Glazed Turnips with Bacon and Balsamic Vinegar
Creative glazes and our oven-glazing technique transform humble root vegetables into exciting side dishes that look good, and taste even better.
Why This Recipe Works
Root vegetables can be hard and fibrous, but in recipes with creative glazes and tempered cooking methods, these humble side dishes really shine. For our Roasted Glazed Turnips with Bacon and Balsamic Vinegar recipe, we cooked the turnips in water, which transformed them into silky, tender morsels. Adding rosemary, balsamic vinegar, and shallots to the cooking liquid boosted the vegetables’ flavor, and incorporating maple syrup helped tame any bitterness.
