RECIPES

Throughout the 20-weeks of our vegetable subscription we will help you cook your way through your share with weekly recipes like this one from Gourmet Foods. This week we've got an abundance of Hakurei salad turnips coming on. These small, round, white turnips are delightful. Simply eat them raw or lightly roast them with miso and butter for perfection. 

 

Miso Glazed Hakurei Turnips

Serves 4 people

Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons white miso
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened, divided
  • 3 pounds small (1 1/2-to 2-inch) Japanese turnips with greens
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine)
Directions

Stir together miso and 2 tablespoon butter. Discard turnip stems and coarsely chop leaves. Halve turnips (leave whole if tiny) and put in a 12-inch heavy skillet along with water, mirin, remaining tablespoon butter, and ⅛ teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then boil, covered, 10 minutes.

Add greens by handfuls, turning and stirring with tongs and adding more as volume in skillet reduces. Cover and cook 1 minute. Uncover and continue boiling, stirring occasionally, until turnips are tender and liquid is reduced to a glaze, about 5 minutes. Stir in miso butter and cook 1 minute.
