  • 1 cup water

  • 1 cube vegetable bouillon

  • 3 cups peeled, cubed turnips

  • ¼ cup minced onion

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 ½ tablespoons sour cream

  • salt and black pepper to taste

  • ½ cup shredded sharp white Cheddar cheese

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Place water and vegetable bouillon cube into a saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook until bouillon cube dissolves, about 1 minute. Stir in turnips, onion, and garlic; return to a boil and cook until turnips are tender, about 10 minutes. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, 10 to 15 more minutes.

  2. Lightly stir in sour cream to coat turnips. Season with salt and pepper. Top with cheese and parsley.
