Serves 2 Prep: 10 min Cook: 30 min

Ingredients

Turnips 2
Stock to cover
Olive oil as required
Sauce:
Red wine 50ml
Balsamic vinegar 60ml
Butter 15g
Salt & pepper as required
Roasted walnuts as required
Extra virgin olive oil as required
Cress as required

Method

1
Peel the turnips and cut into 8 wedges each.
2
Put the wedges into a pan and cover with the stock. Turn on the heat to medium and cook until soft.
3
Rub some olive oil on a heated grill tray and cook the turnip wedges on both sides until nicely browned with stripes. Transfer to a serving dish.
4
Sprinkle lightly with salt & pepper and arrange alongside the roasted walnuts.
5
Make the sauce: put the wine and vinegar in a pan and simmer to reduce to 2/3 volume.
6
Add the butter and melt in by shaking to emulsify. This will thicken the sauce. Pour over the turnips at Step 4.
7
Drizzle the extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with the cress before serving.

I used organic chicken stock cubes from Kallo for this recipe.

Tips & Note

Once you've cooked the turnips, the grill is an extra touch to dry off the moisture and to give an attractive appearance.
