Roasted Hakurei Turnips with Miso and Maple Syrup

I am often asked what is my favorite way to eat Hakurei turnips? My answer usually is, ‘pull them out of the ground, wipe off most of the soil and eat them like an apple’.

That was until I tried Hakurei turnips roasted with a miso, maple syrup and butter glaze.


These are so juicy and earthy delicious and so simple to make. Here is how you do it:

  • Preheat your oven to 425F and wash and cut up a bunch of Hakurei’s into quarters.
  • Toss the turnips in oil, any oil and sprinkle some salt on them and roast them until they are just turning a little brown. About 20 or 25 minutes
  • Make a glaze of equal parts; white miso, butter, and maple syrup (I used about 1 tablespoon of each, miso, maple syrup and butter) and either melt it in a pan on the stove or microwave the mix until it is just melted and taste and smell that. OMG, I want to eat this with a spoon, or on popcorn.
  • When the turnips are lightly roasted brush the melted glaze on the turnips and  return them to the oven for another 10 minutes or so to brown the glaze.

Here are some pictures showing the steps.

  • cut up
  • roasted with oil and salt until brown
  • apply the miso glaze
  • roast until brown


I think this glaze will work on any roasted vegetable. I have a little leftover and I have some vegetables that need using up. I think I’ll try it. I’ll report back and let you know how I like it on other vegetables.

Only 3 CSA pickups left! Have a great week.
