In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to boil. Add turnips and cook for 25-30 minutes, until soft.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, melt 1½ tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add garlic and leeks and cook, stirring occasionally, until they start to brown, about 10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a bowl.
  3. In the same pan, melt remaining ½ tablespoon butter. Add turnip greens and cook until they wilt, 2-4 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. When turnips are soft, drain water and mash until no large chunks remain. Alternatively, you can pulse a couple times in a food processor. Stir in goat cheese and mix until well integrated. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. To plate, place greens down first, top with mashed turnips and then leeks.
