Turnip stew

Turnip stew - just delicious!

January 2nd, 2018 | main dishes

After all that festive roasts and gourmet buffets we feel like cooking something pretty simple. Outside it’s cold and dark and new year still seems to be a bit unreal and strange. Could there be anything better than a fine warming stew with an almost forgotten vegetable, the turnip?


Turnip stew - just delicious! Turnip stew - just delicious!

Many people consider turnips to be cattle feed, whereas older people don’t like to remember this vegetable because during World War I and II often it was the only available food. I’d love to see this vegetable getting popular again!


Turnip Stew

1 kg prime rib
