Turnip Potato Gnocchi with Browned Butter and Sage

Turnip Potato Gnocchi with Browned Butter and Sage

Why I love it: This meal is easy, cheap, delicious and a great way to use up all the turnips that might be piling up in your vegetable garden.

Turnip and potato are a wonderful combination. Usually I roast the two together and eat them with a goat cheese salad but I had already done that a bunch this turnip season and was looking for something new. This dish is it. It’s a straight-forward potato gnocchi recipe but with pureed turnip mixed in. The strong flavor elevates the gnocchi from slightly bland to absolutely delicious and with a bit of browned butter and some chopped sage you have yourself an easy, cheap and yummy meal.
