Give humble root vegetables a chance with this easy roast turnip recipe from Food Network Magazine. The root itself is high in vitamin C, but don’t forget the leafy turnip greens. Similar in flavor to mustard greens, choose smaller leaves for a less bitter taste.

For the root: Peel and cut into wedges. Toss with olive oil or melted butter, and salt and pepper on a baking sheet. Roast at 425 degrees F, 35 to 45 minutes. Try this: Melt 2 tablespoons butter with 1 tablespoon each maple syrup and lemon juice, and a pinch each of cumin and red pepper flakes. Toss with the roasted turnips.

For the greens: Wash and dry 10 cups of turnip greens. Put in a saucepan with 1/2 cup olive oil, 2 thinly sliced garlic cloves, 1/4 cup water and 1 teaspoon salt. Cover and cook over medium-low heat until tender, about 40 minutes. Season with pepper.
