Creamy Homestyle Turnips

Recipe by  

"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."

Directions

  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 is my first time eating a turnip in my whole life and I absolutely love this recipe! I'm trying to expand my vegetable horizon and I've always been curious about turnips. Try this! I soaked the cubed turnips in milk first, as I read somewhere that it makes the turnips less bitter. There was absolutely no bitterness! I didn't have parsley so I added some dried cilantro flakes (like another reviewer) and some dried chives. DELICIOUS! I will eat this all the time!

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 they have more chance of being cooked through, and I won't add the parmesan until I'm just about finished as it made the pot difficult to clean!

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, but still had a great taste! Plus, really easy to make.
