What I love about this recipe is how affordable all the ingredients are and how easy it is to throw together. For a college student who doesn't like to eat out much, like me, those two things are definitely what I'm looking for. Enjoy! If you're looking for a way to add more vegetables, throw in some diced carrots and chopped celery; add when you toss the turnips in.

Directions

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir garlic in melted butter until browned, about 5 minutes. Stir turnips into the butter and garlic; cook and stir until just beginning to soften, 7 to 10 minutes. Add cream and Parmesan cheese to the turnip mixture; bring to a simmer and cook, stirring regularly, until the liquid thickens, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir green onion, oregano, parsley, salt, and black pepper into the turnip mixture; cook until the green onion slightly wilts, 1 to 2 minutes.

Half of the recipe was made with Parmesan cheese the other half without. Used soy milk instead of cream. Both halves were delicious! Read More

Just tried this tonight. Oh my was this good! We made a few changes to lighten it up as follows: 1 tablespoon of butter instead of 2. 1 clove garlic 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth (which we used to cook the turnips after the 7-10 minute cooking time and omitted adding the Parmesan and heavy cream at this time. I added the herbs salt and pepper. 1/2 cup lite sour cream and 1/4 cup of low fat yogurt substitued for the heavy cream. I added this mixture to the turnips after the 10-15 minutes cooking time and broth had been reduced. I also added Parmesan at this time too and shut off the heat. We made 5 servings out of it.

This is my first time eating a turnip in my whole life and I absolutely love this recipe! I'm trying to expand my vegetable horizon and I've always been curious about turnips. Try this! I soaked the cubed turnips in milk first as I read somewhere that it makes the turnips less bitter. There was absolutely no bitterness! I didn't have parsley so I added some dried cilantro flakes (like another reviewer) and some dried chives. DELICIOUS! I will eat this all the time! Read More

This was delicious but I found the garlic cooked much faster than the recipe suggested and the turnips much slower. I cubed my turnips quite small but would make them even smaller next time so they have more chance of being cooked through and I won't add the parmesan until I'm just about finished as it made the pot difficult to clean!

Nice change from usually having pureed (mashed) turnips. Used 1/2 cup whole milk (had no cream on hand) and only put about 2 tbsp of grated parmesan therefore not as creamy as it should be but still had a great taste! Plus really easy to make. Read More

This was so incredibly delicious! I didn't even know I liked turnips. I did use 1/2 & 1/2 instead of whipping cream which was still very rich and the sad part is that I only got to eat a little bit left the rest on the stove to cool down forgot about putting it in the fridge went to work came home and the cats had consumed the whole thing! So mad I went out and bought more turnips and made it again! ALL MINE THIS TIME!!!! Yum! Thanks! Read More

I've never known what to do with turnips - and found this to be a great side dish. I will definitely make it again! I found the need to cook the turnips (cut in 1/2" cubes) for a good 20 minutes for the right texture. I added a bit of nutmeg and found that to be a nice touch. This would make a great holiday side-dish. Read More
