Roasted Potatoes & Turnips

Adding a bit of broth at the start of roasting gives these vegetables a creamier, softer texture than dry-roasting more like potatoes that have been roasted alongside a hefty cut of meat. During roasting, the vegetables absorb the broth and then begin to brown. Once you try this recipe, you might be surprised by how much you like turnips.
