I'm looking for new recipes. I feel like I've been bogged down fixing the same old food. When I read the description for "Turnip Hash Browns" in the BTD Recipes section I can't say I believed it. Turnips and the words, "light and flavorful" just don't seem to go together. But the ingredients were beneficial so I tried them last night.
I followed the recipe except: I had 3 turnips instead of 4, and I had a large onion instead of a small one. So the flavor of mine was a little stronger on onion than the original.
The main course last night was meat patties - beef for me and salmon for the Type As. My husband is terrified of turnips - probably something from his childhood summers in Mississippi. He refused to try them.
My daughter prefers raw vegetables. She initially resisted the turnips because they were cooked. However when she read the ingredients and realized how beneficial they were, she took a taste. She surprised herself and liked them. She said, "I wouldn't eat them plain, but adding a little bit to each bite of salmon tasted good."
I thought they were wonderful with the beef patty. With the spices, they might have been better than grilled onions. I can hardly believe I'm writing that, but it's true. We have a basketball game tonight, and my dinner is a bowl with leftover beef patty, great northern beans and turnip hash browns. My mouth is watering, but it won't be time to eat for another hour.
If you're brave - try Turnip Hash Browns. They are tasty - really.
