Say “howdy” to guest poster Granola Mom 4 God Jodi McKenna and her super simple, healthy, and eye-appealing meals!
34 years have gone by and I have never ever tasted a turnip. It was and remains a white vegetable . . . and for some reason that just seemed wrong to me. I imagined that they would taste like dirt or worse . . . lima beans. I know – this is incredibly immature of me. But at least I am honest.
Our family is branching out, and certainly not a stranger to weird foods. Just when I thought there was little else for us to try! If you ever visit me for a cup of Chai, you’ll find yourself walking into a continual kitchen science experiment. There is no telling what kind of mold, yeast, or bacteria I am growing . . . all in the name of health.
I was convicted to keep these odd white vegetables in my shopping cart because they were grown LOCALLY. And I am all about that, especially after reading Barbara Kingsolver’s book—Animal, Vegetable, Miracle.
So go to the Farmer’s Market, gather your ingredients, and try this turnip dish out on your family. If you have kids, find some way for them to HELP you cook this side dish. When they have the opportunity to take part in their food preparation, it makes a big difference in what you can get them to eat!
