Pear and Turnip Delight
By Chef K.T. Murphy
1 lb turnips
1 shallot, peeled and thinly sliced
3 tbsp unsalted butter
2/3 cup walnut halves
Juice of ½ lemon
Salt and pepper
Handful of chopped parsley
Peel the turnips and cut them into half lengthwise. Then cut them into 1/4inch thick slices. Cut the pears into half, core them and like the turnips slice them into 1/4inch thick slices.
In a large frying pan, melt the butter and fry the turnip until tender and crisp, about 8 minutes. Add the pear slices and shallot and sauté for about 3 minutes. Add the walnut halves and cook for a further 2 minutes. Season well with salt and pepper and add the lemon juice. Toss well. Sprinkle with the fresh parsley and serve immediately with any meat dish.
All the best, Good Food makes For Better Decisions.
