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!

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

30 Min

Ingredients

1 oz
olive oil
1 medium
onions, yellow or white
1 pkg
mushrooms, fresh, any
2 - 3 medium
turnips, no greens
salt and pepper, to taste
several pinch
herbs of choice
1 or 2 dash(es)
red wine
1 Tbsp
butter
1 Tbsp
flour

Directions Step-By-Step

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.
