Roasted Turnips/Cauliflower (w/ Bacon Fat!) and MC Yogi

Veggies + bacon = win.

Oven Roasted Turnips and Cauliflower
This is a go-to dish for me. Veggies just taste better roasted sometimes. Don't get me wrong; I love raw veggies. I also love slow-cooked veggies. Pan fried veggies. Blended veggies. Dehydrated veggies. My mom must be proud if she reads this. I love my veggies.

As many turnips as you wish, cubed into 1 inch squares (give or take)
Cauliflower, sliced up into somewhat smaller pieces (or's that for specific instructions? sorry.)
Bacon drippings (cold - it just makes it easier to work with)

1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
2. Slice up your veggies.
Turnips and ol' faithful (my cutting board)
3. Put everything in a large bowl, add your bacon drippings, salt, and pepper.
Turnips and cauliflower all nice and sliced up + BACON dripping ;). Love it.
4. Using your hands, get everything nice and covered evenly. Really get in there and have some fun with it ;).
5. Using parchment paper or foil (or nothing), put your veggies spread out on a large cookie sheet.
I was lazy. Straight on the tray they went. It smelled like bacon.
6. Bake 'em for 20-25 minutes or so stirring them once at around 10-12 minutes. Watch them closely near the end so they don't burn.
7. Mmmm....bacon + veggies =). (Yes, mmmm is a step.)
The end result. O' yeah.
Right now I have a four layer dehydration session going. My first Kiwi dehydration, more bananas with cinnamon, nutmeg, and a dash of coconut palm sugar (why not!), and some soaked cashews on top. I'll make a post on all of that as soon as they're done so I can get some good end result shots. I also bought some grass fed, aged sharp cheddar today. Very gray area. I'll have a whole post on that too. Lastly (but not least!) I'll be making some paleo carrot cake with paleo frosting soon. Stay tuned!
