Baby Turnips and Sugar Snap Peas

Baby Turnips and Sugar Snap Peas
  

The first week's bounty from our farm share was, as expected, mostly tender spring greens, with some cilantro and scallions. But tucked in the box were a little bundle of baby white turnips and a bag of sugar snap peas.

Turnips and peas are a great combination, and when the turnips are these tender, flavorful babies it's a match made in heaven. In this preparation, both are blanched for a few minutes in boiling salted water (I just dunked them in a pot of water I already had boiling for some pasta), then sautéed briefly with cilantro, lemon zest and breadcrumbs. Yum!

Baby Turnip and Sugar Snap Peas

1 bunch baby turnips
1 C sugar snap peas, strings and stems removed
2 T bread crumbs
2 T butter
1 T lemon zest, minced, plus some whole strands for garnish
3 T scallions, chopped
2 T cilantro, minced
salt, hot sauce to taste

Wash the turnips, trim and cut them in half (peeling not necessary). Blanch about 3 minutes in rapidly boiling salted water, then remove to a collander to drain and cool. Blanch the peas about 2 minutes, then drain. In a skillet, melt the butter and toss the the turnips and peas over medium-high heat for a minute or two. Add the bread crumbs, scallions and cilantro and toss a minute or two more to brown the crumbs. Season to taste with salt and hot sauce.

Oh I'm so glad I saw this tonight! Tomorrow I'm heading to the farmer's market for the first time this season, and I expect I'll find something similar there. Thanks for sharing!

This sounds delicious, I've never had turnips before, but I'll look for them at our farmer's market next time we go!

LOL, sugar snap peas are everywhere! I just put up a story about them yesterday on my kitchen garden blog, but it did NOT include a recipe. : )

P.S. I love, love, love turnips. If you smash some into mashed potatoes, you may never be able to go back to plain mashed potatoes again (unless they're smothered in gravy of course). But I know it can be difficult to mash up adorable baby turnips. : )

What a great recipe, and thanks for the delicious pic! We have both baby turnips and sugar snap peas we are trying to use up from our local CSA and we can pull some early onions from our own garden. Yum!
