This week in our e-mail from The Food Project, http://www.thefoodproject.org/, we received our list of produce that we would be picking up, along with a recipe. I love that they are working with the members to help create meals using the produce included each week. For me, I had never used hakurei turnips in my cooking and appreciated the recipe. Their recipe called for turnips, but since I also received radishes, I decided to add them to the pot. Another easy, delicious, healthy dish...
Braised Hakurei Turnips & Radishes
1 lb. Turnips and radishes, quartered
Salt and pepper
1/2 Cup vegetable broth
2 Tbsp. Dijon
1 Tsp. Cornstarch
Saute the turnips and radishes in a hot pan with olive oil and brown for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper while cooking.
Add vegetable broth, cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Remove vegetables from pan. Stir Dijon and cornstarch together and add to broth, stirring and cooking for 2-3 minutes.
Pour over vegetables and serve.
I was a little hesitant with the Dijon, but it was tasty and once again, Jim devoured the dish. I served this earlier in the week along with the spinach and watercress soup.
Like I said, easy, delicious and healthy. I could get used to this...
Fino a quel momento (until that time)
