Butter-Braised Turnips with Greens & Baby Shiitake Mushrooms

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

Ingredients:
1 pound baby turnips, green tops removed and then washed and patted dry with a paper towel
2 cups baby Shiitake mushrooms, washed thoroughly
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 the turnips, then cut into 1-inch-long pieces.

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

3. Add chicken stock, reserved turnip greens and baby Shiitake mushrooms, as well as 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 vegetables. Add lemon juice and fresh thyme, then season to taste with more salt and pepper as needed. Serve warm.
