Turnips

Posted on: June 6, 2010

This is a recipe that is in our farm newsletter last year and this year.  I think it may be a perennial favorite, and for good reason!

Here are the ingredients for this one:

1 bunch turnips w/ greens

onions (we used some from the farmer’s market)

butter and olive oil

raisins

(optionally) rice or small pasta (of course, this doesn’t really fit into our way of eating, so I just skipped it)

Chop up the turnips and onions while you’re melting about 2 Tablespoons of butter in a pan.  Add to the pan, adding olive oil if needed.  Let them saute until softened, about 8 minutes.

Roughly chop the turnip greens, and add them to the pan with the raisins.  Let this cook for a few minutes until the greens are slightly wilted.  Enjoy!

We had ours with quick and easy lemon pepper chicken – I heated up some olive oil and put lemon pepper in the pan so I’d only have to season the chicken once.  Then I browned one side (and seasoned the other), flipped it over and covered for about 10 minutes – perfect chicken 🙂
