Braised Turnips & Carrots

Simmered in rich chicken stock, this dish is finished with lemon juice and thyme for fresh appeal.

Ingredients:
1 yellow Gilfeather turnip, green tops removed
4-6 Chantenay carrots, green tops removed
1 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 peeled shallots
1 cup chicken stock
Juice from ½ lemon
3 tablespoons fresh thyme
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. Wash and scrub both the turnip and carrots, then cut into 1-inch-long pieces.

2. Heat butter and oil over medium-high heat in a large sauce pan, then and add shallots, turnips and carrots. Sauté for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until vegetables begin to caramelize.

3. Add chicken stock, and a dash each of salt and pepper. Cover with a lid and turn heat down to low. Let simmer for another 10 minutes, or until stock has mostly been absorbed by veggies. Add lemon juice and fresh thyme, then season to taste with more salt and pepper as needed. Serve warm.
