Print Recipe


  • 1 Turnip
  • 2 tablespoons Olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Black pepper
  • Seasonings of your choice


  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F degrees
  • Peel the turnips and cut into half
  • Thinly slice the turnip (as thin as you can is better)
  • In a bowl add the olive oil and seasoning of choice
  • Add the turnip slices, season with salt and pepper and toss until all slices are covered.
  • Either using a small quiche tin or a muffin tin, place the turnip slices into the dish to arrange a rose shape. Start with the outside pieces and work your way into the middle. For the centre piece, use a very thin slice and roll into a tight roll and slices around it. Place in the centre and fashion slices around it.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes until golden and soft.
  • Towards the end of the baking time, if the edges of the turnip slices start to crisp, add a dollop of butter and bake until soft and golden.
  • Remove from the oven and serve immediately
