Here are some great recipe ideas featuring the vegetables in your CSA share this week. You can search our RECIPE PAGE by vegetable to find more. (All posted recipes are archived there.) Enjoy!

Butter-browned turnips

1 bunch turnips, scrubbed

1-2 Tbsp. butter

sea salt

Optional additions: turnip greens, sugar snap peas (in spring)

Remove tops and roots from turnips and cut into 1/2 inch wedges. Melt butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Once melted, add turnips and sprinkle with sea salt. Cover with a lid and cook for about 5 mintutes. Remove lid. Turnips should be browned on the bottom, but not burnt. Keep heat on medium and stir turnips for a few minutes to brown other sides slightly. If desired, add 2 handfuls of sugar snap peas, or 2 cups chopped kale or turnip greens, and cook uncovered 2 minutes more. Serve and enjoy.

Speedy Sauteed Hakurei Turnips and Greens

Adapted from http://projects.eveningedge.com/recipes/speedy-sauteed-hakurei-turnips-and-greens/

Hands on time: 10 minutes  Total time: 20 minutes  Serves: 4

Ingredients:

1 large bunch hakurei turnips with greens, or 2 smaller bunches

1/2 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 tablespoon butter

salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup white wine

Instructions:

Rinse the turnips and greens well. Cut the greens from the turnips and chop into 2-inch pieces. Trim any straggly roots from the turnips and discard. Cut the turnips into quarters or eighths, depending on size.
In a sauté pan with a lid, heat the olive oil and butter. Add the turnips, sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper, and sauté until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. If you like them crisp -tender, remove the turnips from the pan. Otherwise, to soften the turnips, leave them in while you cook the greens.
Add the greens to the pan, along with any moisture still clinging to the leaves. Cover the pan and allow the greens to cook, stirring once or twice, until just tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the white wine and cook until almost all the liquid is gone. If you removed the turnips, now return them to the pan; cook 1 to 2 minutes to heat through. Serve immediately.
 

Mashed Taters & Turnips topped with Turnip Greens

1 bunch turnips with greens

3-4 medium potatoes

1 onion, sliced in rings, or a few scallions, chopped

2 T. butter

milk (optional)

sea salt

black pepper

sour cream or goat cheese (optional)

 

Separate turnips from greens. Scrub turnips. Sort greens to remove any yellowed leaves. Wash greens thoroughly and chop coarsely. Cut turnips into quarters, if large, halves if small. Scrub potatoes and cut into chunks.

Put potato and turnip chunks into a pot. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Boil until soft.

Meanwhile, saute onion or scallion in olive oil until soft. Add chopped turnip greens and cook until tender. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat, but keep covered until turnips and potatoes are done.

When potatoes and turnips are soft, drain. Mash with butter. (You can use a potato masher for a chunky mix, or for a smoother texture, use a mixer.) Add milk if thinner consistency is desired, but I find the juicy turnips help make a nice texture without adding milk.) Season with salt and pepper to taste.

For each serving, put a nice mound of mashed roots on the plate. Top with a healthy dollop of sour cream. Scatter the sauteed greens & onions over top. Enjoy!

Serves 4-6
