Good with grilled meat and a green salad. I don’t think turnips should ever be allowed to get bigger than golf-ball size.


  • 1 lb (450 g) tiny new potatoes
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 small turnips, halved
  • ½ pint (275 ml) vegetable stock
  • ½ pint (275 ml) water
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Fresh herbs, coriander leaves if possible


    Put the potatoes, onion and turnips into the stock and the water. Bring to a boil and cook, uncovered, until all the liquid has gone. Add the oil, brown for a few minutes, then add the salt and herbs and serve.
