Julie Moore (a CSA member) got this delicious recipe from a lovely Italian man she sat next to on an airplane to Germany. The parsley is a nice contrast to the turnips. It’s the usual butternut squash risotto recipe, but adapted – loosely speaking: 1 onion or leeks, diced 2-3 turnips, in small cubes 1 c Arborio (risotto) rice 3-4 c broth ½-1 c chopped parsley Parmesan (as desired).
Sauté the onion and turnips for ten minutes or so in olive oil. Add risotto and stir continuously. Slowly add heated broth, one ladle at a time, until absorbed, until rice cooks (keep stirring the whole time!). When nearly done, add the fresh parsley and season with salt and pepper. Voila! Another way to use those turnips!
