Makes 6 to 8 servings

  • 1 pound smallest firm turnips, peeled and cut into large chunks

  • 3 cups well-flavored chicken stock, or more

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley

  2. Return the puree to the saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring, until the puree is thick and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. Serve this simple cooking recipes very hot, garnished with the parsley.

  3. Variation: add 1 cup fluffy mashed potatoes to the turnips, and then beat in 1 cup very tender braised cabbage and 2 tablespoons butter. This simple everyday recipes goes very well with smoke sausage, such as kielbasa.
