    Geema's Note:

    I confess to being turnip ignorant. It seems a shame to let a perfectly good vegetable go uneaten for lack of knowledge. Then I found this recipe in "Yamuna's Table", and I became a turnip convert. Try it and join me in having a new appreciation for this humble vegetable.

      These were great. I'm not crazy about french fries so was happy to find this. I did toss the turnip pieces in the oil first and then in the spices. It seemed to me if i tried to brush on the oil it would brush off all the spices and cheese. It worked great. Thanks for a great recipe Geema.

      Really enjoyed this turnip recipe! They were zippy , a nice addition to my dinner and very different from my regular mashed carrots & turnips. Followed the recipe except when it came to the baking. I used my baking stone with a piece of parchment paper on it had oven at 375f. This way I did not need any oil and they came out golden and delicious - This is a real keeper Thanks Geema

      Unusual recipe, and really good! I used rutabaga instead of turnip; I adore rutabaga. I think I went a little overboard on the pepper, as measuring is not one of my strong points, but the flavor was very nice. Watch these in the oven toward the end, mine were on the verge of getting a little too cooked. Very yummy recipe, thanks!
