5-10 small to medium turnips, peeled
3 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
chopped fresh chives
salt & pepper to taste
Place peeled turnips in a pot of salted water to cover. Bring to a boil. Cook 20 to 30 minutes or until turnips can be pierced easily with a paring knife. Drain. Let cool slightly.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Gently press each one down until it's approximately ½-inch high. Let them drain for 15 minutes.
Combine garlic, olive oil and salt and black pepper, to taste in a small bowl.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or nonstick aluminum foil. Place the flattened turnips on the lined baking sheet. Brush each turnip with a little of the olive oil and garlic combination. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over each turnip, gently pressing it down.
Carefully and quickly flip each turnip over. Repeat with the remaining olive oil and garlic combination and cheese.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Flip each turnip and bake an additional 15 minutes.
Garnish with chopped fresh chives and serve.
