- Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
- In a mixing bowl, toss turnips with cayenne, nutmeg, salt, and vegetable oil.
- Spread seasoned turnips evenly on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast until golden on both sides and just cooked through (stirring halfway through cooking), about 20−25 minutes.
- Cool 5−10 minutes, until warm but no longer very hot. Toss warm turnips in lemon zest, lemon juice, and sesame oil. Top with benne seeds and serve.
