Refried Turnip with Maple Syrup

 

Refried Turnip with Maple Syrup - Recipe | Spice Trekkers

All you need to balance out the bitterness of turnip is a touch of maple syrup.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups boiled turnips
  • 4 Tbsp duck fat or bacon
  • ½ tsp fenugreek seed
  • ½ tsp black pepper, cracked
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp ginger, chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup or honey

 

Method

  1. Peel turnip and chop it into 1-inch cubes.
  2. Heat a pan or wok on medium. Add duck fat, fenugreek and cracked pepper. Sauté 15-30 seconds, until the fenugreek begins to color.
  3. Add onion and ginger. Cook for a few minutes, until onions are golden. Add turnip and cook for a few minutes until it is warmed through. Mash into a purée in the wok with a wooden pestle or potato masher. Cook 2-3 minutes more, stirring regularly. Salt and incorporate maple syrup.
