Roast Carrots and Turnips

So....I've never cooked a turnip before, I've always sliced them, salted them and eaten them raw. I had read somewhere how good they were when "cooked", so I thought I would give them a try. I was pleasantly surprised. They lose all the "bitterness" that they have when raw and taste similar to a potato. I cook them all the time now and love them!! They are one of my favorite veggies now!

Roast Carrots and Turnips
1 small bag baby carrots
2 large turnips, peeled and cut into "chunks"
Mrs. Dash OR your favorite seasoning (I used Mrs. Dash grilling blend, for chicken)

Spray 8x8 baking pan with cooking spray. Place carrots and turnips in prepared baking dish. Add 1 c. water. Sprinkle with seasoning. Cover with foil. Bake at 250 degrees for 3 hours (I cooked this while I was gone) OR you can bake it at 350 for approximately 1-1 1/2 hours.

*I don't like my veggies to be super soft, I still like them a tad bit firm...
