Stove-Top Turnip Dinner

In the early 1980’s a foreign exchange student from Morocco lived with us for a year. This is one of many unique and tasty dishes she introduced to us. She served it over couscous, but you could use quinoa or rice.

1 Tbsp. olive oil

¼ c. thinly slivered onion

1½ c. ½” diced turnips

½-¾ c. ½” sliced carrots –about 2 carrots

2 Tbsp. tomato paste

¼ tsp. ground cumin

Salt and pepper

Dash of cayenne, optional

1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed

1 c. chicken or vegetable broth

2 Tbsp. snipped cilantro

1 Tbsp. snipped parsley, optional

In a large skillet or soup pot, saute the onion for 1-2 minutes until soft. Add the turnips, carrots, tomato paste, and cumin. Stir and season with salt, pepper and cayenne (if using). Add the beans and broth, cover, and cook on a low-simmer for about 15 minutes, or until turnips and carrots are tender. Just before serving, stir in the herbs. Serve over couscous.
