Barbequed Turnips with Garlic
Now that grilling season is upon us, I'm throwing all kinds of things on the grill to see what works. Actually, for me, anything grilled with garlic can't be bad, but since I already had the grill hot for the main dish, I thought I try this out.
Your turnips sliced no thicker than 1/4 thick
California olive oil to cover
Salt and pepper to gaste
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
grated zest of 1 Eureka lemon
Cook garlic in 2 tablespoons of olive oil over high heat until garlic sizzles, then reduce heat and cook garlic until it's golden, 2 minutes. Transfer to mixing bowl, combine parsley and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper.
Combine California olive oil with salt and pepper and then cover your cut turnips with your seasoned oil, grill until tender; probably 2 minutes per side.
Stir in parsley/garlic and top with lemon zest.
