Sautéed Turnips with Fine Herbs

Today we`re keeping it simple with this fine herbs on sautéed turnips recipe, which can be considered more of a side dish rather than a main one. Actually a very versatile side dish, as turnip works just fine with lot`s of other dishes and ingredients due to it`s mild taste. Besides that turnips contain a lot of vitamin C, niacin and folic acid, as well as iron, magnesium, calcium and potassium and they`re low calorie food. Or to give you the short form, turnips are healthy, whilst tasting really good.

Have you ever prepared turnips? Well then you know, that it`s no big deal, as they`re pretty easy to work with. You`re going to make this dish within a short amount of time, but let me show you.

What you need (for one serving, meant as a side dish):

  • 1 turnip
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 branch parsley
  • 20g chive
  • salt
  • black pepper, freshly ground
  • wash and peel turnip
  • slice turnip 
  • heat canola oil in a frying pan
  • sautée the turnip slices until can pierce it easily with a knife
  • serve on a small plate 
  • season with salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • rinse off parsley and chive
  • finely chop and sprinkle them over sautéed turnips
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: approximately 5 minutes

If you want to serve this as a main dish just double the amount. It will work pretty fine, turnips are quite saturating believe me. Of course you can switch the turnips by any other vegetable you love or prefer, like carrots, leek, potatoes, sweet potatoes, chard, I could go on and on and on, but enough rambling, just try the recipe, share your thoughts and read you soon.
