Ohhh, that sounds so tasty, edelC! I've never cooked a turnip but I think I might need to try Smiley.

Ooh, thanks edelC!  I actually read to both salt and sugar the water, to get them to take on a milder flavor...ever tried it?

Turnips actually have quite a bit of natural sugar in them so I could see how putting a little bit of sugar would mellow them out a bit. My dad used to make them when we were kids and put maple syrup on them. We're French Canadian. We put maple syrup on everything.
Now I actually prefer them roasted, just a little olive oil and seasoning (i like turmeric) and roast in the oven for like, 45 mins until nice and carmelized. Like candy! I suppose you could also roast them and then mash them to give them a heartier flavor!

Oops, I'm late for putting up a new challenge for this week! Sorry!

Health Prompt for Week of Feb 19-25:
Track what you eat for at least one day and evaluate if you want/need to change anything to meet your healthy eating goals. Not enough fruits and veggies? More fat than you want? Not enough protein? We all have different goals to make ourselves healthier, so please share your findings if you like!  (Whether that's sharing your food journal for the day + your evaluations or just your evaluations)

I am not a turnip fan, but I am going to revisit them because your suggestions sound wonderful!

I also found a pancake recipe that uses up some of my homemade yogurt...and is low in carbs!

Love turnips. Rutabaga, squashes, sweet potatoes, beets, taro... I like root veggies.

Though I miss it I haven't had a rice cooker in years, not since I banned all that cancer causing teflon from our kitchen Tongue. I was thinking it would be great to use a crock pot to cook grains so looked it up and voila! That tiny yogurt making crock I bought will be prefect for steaming rice, yay!

I don't think I've ever eaten a turnip! I added a couple to our next grocery delivery. I'm excited to try them.

So I know I'm a little late, but last week's prompt was to try a new food. And while I didn't actually DO anything to it (cook it or anything), I tried rose hips. Straight off the bush in the front yard. Very interesting flavor and texture. I think I will try to make some tea out of them (I guess that's the popular thing to do?). I dunno if different types of roses mean different flavors of rose hips, but the ones I had tasted sort of like a mix between a pink lady apple and a strawberry... and the texture was sort of like tomato paste, with these stingy bits in it. Bizarre, but yea.

Ooh, that looks tasty!  Speaking of Kale, I was just contemplating this recipe: http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2009/03/colcannon-puffs.html since I've still got half a bag of potatoes at home...
