Smoky Grilled Turnips w/ Lemon Thyme Aioli
Cooking & Drinking
Fire up the grill for an early season cookout with spring turnips! To prepare indoors, oven roast the turnips at 400° for 30 minutes or until slightly tender, which will vary depending on the size. Simply cut turnips in half or quarter after peeling the skin, if you have larger roots on hand. Save any extra lemon aioli to use in sandwich, burger, dip for carrot sticks, or any place a flavorful condiment is needed! Shop here to see what's available for delivery.
- 3 medium turnips (baby turnips or Hakurei turnips preferred, but any turnip will do!)
- 2 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- generous pinch of smoked paprika
- salt and pepper to taste
Aioli: Place all ingredients, except oil, into blender then slowly add oil while blending, allowing the ingredients to emulsify into a smooth homogenous sauce. This is a great job for your handheld immersion blender or small to medium-sized blender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Turnips: Wash and peel. Cut into 1/4” disks. Toss in olive oil, salt, pepper, smoked paprika. Grill on high, 2-4 minutes on each side until tender. Alternatively, cut into 1” chunks and skewer to make kebabs. This recipe is versatile — try it with radishes!
