Refried Turnip with Maple Syrup

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


  • 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


  1. 1

    Peel turnip and chop it into 1-inch cubes.

  2. 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. 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.
