We got these gorgeous turnip roots from the garden the other day and I wanted to cook them right away to take advantage of their freshness. Normally, I would simply cook these roots along with the greens or just boil them and simply buttered. This time around, I wanted to try something new because the ‘simply boiled’ recipes just was not such a big hit with the girls.
Turnip roots, sliced into 1/4 inch thickness
1 large onion, chopped
1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
Salt & Pepper to taste
1/2 cup Water
Melt the butter over medium heat. Place the turnips and onions and pan fry on one side for a few minutes until they start to get some color. Turn over and let it brown some more. Add 1/2 cup water, season with salt and pepper and cover. Let it cook until all the liquid has evaporated and it starts sizzling again. Adjust the seasoning and serve.
