French Turnips (Swede or Rutabaga)

Recipe by Allyoop

This is a traditional Christmas dinner side dish for our family. Make sure that you use rutabaga instead of the white turnips

Top Review by Clara12

This is a wonderful recipe - soft, mild but hearty and elegant. As I had no turnips at home I prepared it with potatoes and carrots and it turned out just great. While I prepared the sauce I put the vegetable mix in the oven, so it could already cook and the time reduced from 1 hour to 40 minutes all together. I am so lucky you shared this recipe with us, this will definitively become a keeper and is comfort food as its best.
