Carol's notes for this recipe:
Great, hearty, and earthy vegetarian recipe with heavy French influences.
My first attempt with turnips has become a house favorite I can't wait to make again!

Directions

1
Heat olive oil in medium saute pan over medium to medium-low heat.
2
Slice onions, turnips, and mushrooms thinly (1/4 inch or so) and add to pan. Cover and stir occasionally.
3
When all the veggies are mostly cooked and tender, add salt, pepper, herbs, and a splash of red wine. Stir and return cover.
4
In a separate dish, blend butter and flour. I have found this easier on a small plate with a fork. This is a French technique with a fancy name for thickening sauces.
5
Turn heat to low and add butter-flour mixture, stirring gently until well blended.
6
I like to serve over rice or chicken.
7
Variations: add finely chopped bacon or pancetta, brown in pan before adding sliced veg.
Turnips can be omitted for a great sauce over meat.
Omit red wine and add spices like curry, cinnamon, and garam masala for Indian flair, or cumin, garlic, and adobo for a Latin touch.

Thanks, Carol. I shall try this very soon. It looks just delicious. I will have to look for turnips in the grocery. We may not have them this time of year. BUT my turnips have sprouted in the garden! So, in a few weeks we'll have loads to enjoy.

I'm so happy that you have a garden and are growing turnips! I work at a hydroponic farm and watching the veggies grow is my favorite part. I'm sure your will be super tasty. Please let me know how everything turns out!

We have had so many turnips this year and I wanted a new way to fix them. Loving roasted Vegetables I decided to try turnips it will not be the last time so much flavor.
I cut them in cubes placed on a cookie sheet sprayed with Pam add a little salt cooked until tender. So good

Since I've never cooked turnips before, I have no idea what herbs would work best. Need input :)
