Sweet Baby Turnips and the 20 Week Mission Begins



My CSA box from New Earth Farm arrived today amidst torrential downpours.

Buried among all the wonderful luscious greens were a bunch of baby turnips. Tiny white and purple bulbs destined not to see tomorrow!


Roasted until sweet and just tender. I tossed them with a vinaigrette of olive oil, Sherry vinegar, fresh chives from the box, parsley from my balcony and shallot (from the pantry!). I tossed the hot turnips with the vinaigrette, topped them with the chive flowers, which actually had much more flavor than the stems and served them along side a barely over-easy farm fresh egg!


Add a glass of super cold Chardonnay and yum! A great summer supper on a night that feels wonderfully spring like!

    Thanks for the recipe. I also cooked the greens with a shallot, garlic, chicken stock and Dijon mustard.
