Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

Default ROASTED TURNIPS with Balsamic Vinegar


(2-3 servings, recipe can be doubled. Recipe created by Kalyn.)


2 large turnips
1 T olive oil
1 T balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
additional 1 tsp. balsamic vinegar for finishing (optional)
chopped parsley (for serving, optional)


Preheat oven to 450F/230C. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray or olive oil.

Cut the stem and root end off the turnips and cut in half lengthwise. Peel turnips with vegetable peeler, then cut into bite-sized pieces. Whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, thyme, salt, and pepper. Put turnips in a bowl and toss with the balsamic mixture, turning them over a few times so they're well-coated with the oil and vinegar.

Spread turnips in a single layer on the baking sheet, arranging them with a flat side down. Roast turnips 25 minutes; then remove the pan and turn each one over so a different side is touching the pan. Roast about 10 minutes more, until turnips are softened and lightly browned.

Arrange cooked turnips on a serving plate and drizzle over a little more balsamic vinegar, if desired. (This is the time to use that expensive aged Balsamic if you're lucky enough to have some.) Season with a little more salt and fresh-ground black pepper and sprinkle with a little chopped parsley if desired. Serve hot.
