“This dish begs to be served with a pork chop.”
Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Toss the turnip cubes with a nice glug of olive oil and season generously with salt and black pepper. Spread evenly on a baking sheet and roast until fully tender and lightly browned, 25-30 minutes.
Pile into a bowl, sprinkle with the vinegar, and toss to distribute. Let the turnips absorb the vinegar for a minute. Add the maple syrup, thyme, and chile flakes and toss. Taste and adjust with more salt and pepper if needed.
