"What I love about this recipe is how affordable all the ingredients are and how easy it is to throw together. For a college student who doesn't like to eat out much, like me, those two things are definitely what I'm looking for. Enjoy! If you're looking for a way to add more vegetables, throw in some diced carrots and chopped celery; add when you toss the turnips in."

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir garlic in melted butter until browned, about 5 minutes. Stir turnips into the butter and garlic; cook and stir until just beginning to soften, 7 to 10 minutes. Add cream and Parmesan cheese to the turnip mixture; bring to a simmer and cook, stirring regularly, until the liquid thickens, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir green onion, oregano, parsley, salt, and black pepper into the turnip mixture; cook until the green onion slightly wilts, 1 to 2 minutes.

Half of the recipe was made with Parmesan cheese, the other half without. Used soy milk instead of cream. Both halves were delicious!

This was delicious, but I found the garlic cooked much faster than the recipe suggested and the turnips much slower. I cubed my turnips quite small, but would make them even smaller next time so...

Nice change from usually having pureed (mashed) turnips. Used 1/2 cup whole milk (had no cream on hand) and only put about 2 tbsp of grated parmesan, therefore, not as creamy as it should be, b...

This was so incredibly delicious! I didn't even know I liked turnips. I did use 1/2 & 1/2 instead of whipping cream, which was still very rich, and the sad part is that I only got to eat a lit...

Just tried this tonight. Oh my was this good! We made a few changes to lighten it up as follows: 1 tablespoon of butter instead of 2. 1 clove garlic 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth (which we...

VERRY GOOD alternative to potatoes. Peel the turnips before cutting.

I've never known what to do with turnips - and found this to be a great side dish. I will definitely make it again! I found the need to cook the turnips (cut in 1/2" cubes) for a good 20 minut...

We had never tried turnips before so this was the perfect starter recipe! Plus it has ingredients that I commonly have in the house.
