Baby Turnip and Peas

My grandmother shared this recipe with me, and also brought the fresh baby turnip and peas, so we cooked it up as a side dish at camp.  The farm fresh baby turnips had a nice sweet flavor, quite different from the large store-bought variety.

It’s very easy to make:  Slice the baby turnips very thinly, but there’s no need to peel them as long as they have been scrubbed well.  Cook the sliced turnips over medium-high heat in about 1 tbsp butter or olive oil until lightly browned, then add the peas, cooking until the peas are cooked to your liking.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

I would have never thought to cook turnips and peas together prior to trying this, and I have to say that the flavor combination was great.  We really enjoyed it, and will definitely make it again!
