Thermomix Risotto with Green Turnips



Would you like to taste a very autumn risotto? Et voilà: here it is a Risotto with Green Turnip.

Green Turnip are so delicious and they are very versatile and healthy. Being very rich in folate, they help preventing newborn's spina bifida when eaten during pregnancy. Just boil them and dress with extra-virgin olive oil, salt and lemon - or try one of these great risotto recipes!

The first recipe was sent by Terry Salvi. I highly reccomend serving this with white wine, which combines harmoniously with the sour taste of turnips.

The second recipe was sent by Rosaria Berritto from Salerno.

Recipe n° 1


Ingredients


4 people serving

- 200 g Turnip Greens (tender tops)
- 50 g Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 Garlic Clove
- 250 g Rice
- 600 ml Vegetable Stock using Cube Stock (prepare more of it in case it is necessary)
- a knob Butter
- a little Grated Parmesan Cheese
- Salt to taste


How to prepare the Risotto with Turnip Greens


Put oil and garlic in the bowl. Sauté. 5 Min. 100°C Reverse Speed 1.

Add turnips tops previously washed in cold water. 5 Min. Speed 1.

Add rice and roast a little bit. 2 Min. 100°C Reverse Speed 1.

Add 600 ml stock, cook. 12 Min. 100°C Reverse Speed 1 (verify the cooking and if you need to add some more stock).

At the end of the cooking add salt if needed and mix with butter and parmesan cheese.

Serve when it reaches the perfect consistency: it means it might be eaten indifferently both with a fork or a tablespoon. In Italian we say it using a proper expression: to serve risotto "all'onda", meaning it must move like a wave when you shake the pan.


Terry's advice


She suggests you should use bright green, thin and thick turnip greens. Avoid those ones with yellow inflorescences.
