daidoji_gisei: (Cooking)
I came home feeling I needed something approximately healthy for dinner but not really in the mood to cook. So I chopped up half the turnips from today's CSA share and threw them into a pot with chicken broth, a chopped clove of garlic, and a Parmesan rind. Then I chopped all of the turnip greens, including the stems (look, I paid good money for those stems), added them to the pot, simmered till tender. Then I added a package of seitan chunks for protein and let it warm back up. Dinner, done.

It tastes delicious, mainly due to the chicken stock (home-made, thanks to my pressure cooker) and the Parmesan rind. So much flavor! It I do something like this again I'll put the greens in at the same time as the chopped roots, I like my greens tender. And since it's such a basic recipe, the sky is the limit for proteins.
