Rob’s Recipe of the Week: Hip Turnips

November 28, 2019 by General Administrator

Turnips are one of the things I find it hardest to find recipes for. Luckily it seems they are gaining a “hip status” over in New York, so I’ve found a few recipes from Bon Appetit (If you like cooking shows I recommend their youtube channel, especially “It’s Alive” with Brad). I’ve no idea how this one will turn out but I look forward to trying it!

Miso-glazed turnips
1 pound (450g) turnips trimmed, scrubbed and cut into 2cm wedges
2 tablespoons white miso (near the spices in supermarkets normally)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
salt and pepper

Combine turnips, miso, butter, and sugar in a medium skillet/pan, then add water just to cover vegetables. Season with salt and pepper.
Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook turnips, turning occasionally, until they are tender and liquid is evaporated, 15–20 minutes.
Once all the liquid has cooked off, keep cooking turnips, tossing occasionally, until they are golden brown and caramelized and the sauce thickens and glazes the vegetables, about 5 minutes longer.
Add lemon juice and a splash of water to pan and swirl to coat turnips. Season with salt and pepper.
