Recipe: Roasted Baby Turnips, Radishes & Spring Carrots

The farmer’s market provides such delicious vegetables this time of year and roasting brings out the sweet caramel flavor of these baby turnips, spring carrots and radishes.

This dish proves that you don’t need something to be complicated for it to be delectable.

My three kids, 7, 4 & almost 2 were practically inhaling these as they came out of the oven.
