Cabbage and Turnips

Standard

My FOODILY app did it again! I typed in “turnips” in the Search box and found a great recipe from Williams-Sonoma. It called for savoy cabbage, but I had green cabbage so I used that instead. It went great with my Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Radishes!

Savoy Cabbage and Turnips

Curly-leaved savoy cabbage, turnip and carrot are combined in this simple sauté of autumn vegetables. The combination makes an ideal bed for seared duck breast.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbs. unsalted butter
  • 1 turnip, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1 carrot, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1 head savoy cabbage, about 2 lb., quartered,
    cored and sliced crosswise into strips 1/4
    inch wide (I used green cabbage)
  • 3/4 cup low-sodium chicken stock
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tbs. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (I used kale)

Directions:

In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add the turnip and carrot and sauté until lightly browned, about 7 minutes. Add the cabbage (and kale) and sauté until wilted, about 2 minutes. Stir in the stock, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, uncovered, until the cabbage is tender and most of the cooking liquid has evaporated, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the parsley. Serve immediately. Serves 6.
