I love this recipe it is a great way to still enjoy a meal that tastes like potatoes without all the carbs. I would pair it with meatloaf yum or a good piece of salmon.

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 1/2 pounds medium turnips, trimmed and left unpeeled
  • 1 tablespoon chopped thyme
  • 1/2 tablespoon chopped savory
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • Rounded 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
  • .5 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (use a Microplane)
  • Equipment: an adjustable-blade slicer

 

Preheat oven to 450°F with rack in middle.

Melt butter in an ovenproof 12-inch heavy skillet, then cool.

Slice turnips paper-thin with slicer, then arrange one third of slices, overlapping tightly, in skillet, keeping remaining slices covered with dampened paper towels. Sprinkle with about a third of thyme, savory, kosher salt, and cayenne. Make 2 more layers.

Cook, covered, over medium heat until underside is browned, about 10 minutes. Add cream and cook, covered, until center is tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

Sprinkle evenly with cheese, then bake, uncovered, until golden and bubbling, 10 to 15 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
