Roast Turnips with Sweet Potatoes and Apples

I saw some purple topped turnips at the store yesterday and decided to give them a try. Turnips are rich in vitamin C, beta carotene and insoluble fiber. They are also a good source of lutein, phosphorus and calcium. I decided to just simply roast these with some sweet potatoes and apples and add a bit of kick via cayenne pepper, balsamic vinegar and walnuts. You can throw this together in a few minutes and it makes a filling and satisfying side dish.
