Miso-Butter Braised Turnips

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/miso_butter_turnips.html

From EatingWell:  November/December 2012

Slowly braising turnips in savory miso-spiked broth and butter gives them a sweet flavor and velvety texture in this side dish recipe. The addition of turnip greens (which are sometimes sold separately in bunches) adds a peppery bite. For a mellower flavor, use spinach.

6 servings, about 3/4 cup each | Active Time: 45 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Peel turnips and cut into 1-inch wedges. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the turnips and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned in spots and beginning to soften, 7 to 9 minutes.
  2. Add 1 cup broth and sugar; reduce heat to maintain a simmer. Cook, stirring frequently, until the turnips are tender and the liquid is almost completely evaporated, 15 to 20 minutes. (Add up to 1/2 cup more broth if the pan is dry before the turnips are tender.)
  3. Meanwhile, mash miso with the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a small bowl until combined.
  4. When the turnips are tender, stir in the turnip greens (or spinach), cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat. Add the miso-butter and gently stir until the turnips are well coated.
