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!

  • 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

How to Make Sauteed Turnips with Herbs

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.
