This is a side dish of turnip that you will want to eat again and again. The stacks look elegant and the garlic oil that they are cooked in really enhance this dish. You could play around with the seasoning but I rather like thyme along with turnip.
This makes a great side dish to a tasty main or roast dinner. The husband’s verdict was pleasing to the eye, pleasing to the palate.
