Creamy Homestyle Turnips

Rated as 4.7 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. 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.

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...

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...

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, b...

This is my new favorite veggie

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 lit...

VERRY GOOD alternative to potatoes. Peel the turnips before cutting.

Quite delicious. I used nutritional yeast instead of Parmesan, simply because I had no parm in the house. I also added a kohlrabi to the party, just because I could.
