My first trip to a farmers market this year, and I was excited, I love this time of year! A friend had mentioned this place and I had never heard of it, so I had to investigate. Well… I am glad I did, I had such a nice visit and came home with some wonder ingredients, plus a few tomato plants. I can not wait to see the rainbow of colors from these tomatoes plants, that I will soon be cooking with!
This is our side dish from my farmers market finds.
Sauteed Baby Turnips, Grilled Scapes with Za’tar Brown Butter
about 12-14 baby turnips
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon Za’tar seasoning
In a small pot filled with water, boil turnips until tender (about 10 minutes depending on the size). Remove turnips from water and place in a frying pan with butter and lightly brown turnips on medium, low heat.
Meanwhile; brush scapes with with olive oil and place on grill on medium heat and cook until scapes are softened and have grill marks ( about 3-4 minute).
Add Za’tar to to pan, mix with butter and cook another minute.
Place scapes on serving plates/platter, place turnips onto plates/patter and drizzle with Za’tar brown butter and serve. That simple! Enjoy!
