So I know our last posts were all about moderation… and I really did think about a more healthy route I could take with these wintery root veggies… but unfortunately I’ve destroyed any sort of nutritional value to be gained by eating these turnips with the massive quantity of butter I’ve covered them with.
But whatever, life is short.
To make this delicious French-style dish you will need (for two or three side dishes):
6 turnips, roots and stems removed, peeled
4 tbsp butter at room temperature
1 clove garlic, minced
1 stem tarragon, minced
3 tbsp parsley, minced (I used flat leaf but curly is fine!)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp lemon juice
Preheat your oven to 425°F.
Blanch the turnips in boiling water for three minutes, remove immediately to an ice bath.
Mix the soft butter with the garlic, herbs and s+p, reserving about a tablespoon of parsley for garnish.
Serve alongside your favorite protein and enjoy!
