Turnip "Grits" - Cook For Your Life-anti-cancer resipes

Turnip “Grits”

I happen to be a huge fan of turnips. I love their sweet peppery flavor. These turnip grits with their rich grits-like porridge are the perfect comforting small plate when treatment has left you weary and not up for much. Taste aside, the benefits of turnips are many; they are low carb, which won’t sap your remaining energy, and with cousins kale and cabbage, which are part of the cancer fighting cruciferous family, they are some of the best allies a person can have on the cancer journey. Go turnips!

1. Bring the milk to a boil in a saucepan.  Place the turnips into the hot milk and cook
for about 10-15 minutes (they should be soft, but a bit al dente).
2. Strain the turnips, reserving the milk.
3. Put the turnips into a blender with ½ cup of reserved milk, olive oil, salt, and cream
cheese. Blend and look for a grits consistency, being careful not to blend too
thoroughly. Taste and add additional salt if needed.Alex De Los Reyes, Drexel Food Lab
