Impressed by a potato and dill dish my Japanese European grandmother used to make, I made a decision to recreate this comforting childhood recipe utilizing decrease glycemic turnips as an alternative of starchy potatoes – for balanced blood sugar. Thinly slicing the turnips, and slowly baking them, helps to launch their pure sweetness, and reduce the refined bitterness of this seasonal root vegetable. Whereas my grandmother’s bake contained loads of vegetable oil and margarine, I lightened up the dish by utilizing only a couple tablespoons of heart-healthy olive oil. Incorporating candy pink onion was one other adjustment I made to the recipe – for further taste, texture, and vitamins. The recent dill is what actually makes this recipe harking back to my grandmother’s model, providing fragrant freshness and savoriness!


  • Turnips, 2 medium
  • Purple onion, 1 medium
  • Recent dill, small bunch
  • Olive oil, 2 tablespoons
  • Lemon, 1 (juice and zest of half
  • Salt & cracked black pepper


  1. Warmth the oven to 400 levels. Chop the highest and backside off the turnips. Slice them into skinny rounds on a mandoline (this if my fave product).
  2. Slice the pink onion into skinny rounds utilizing a chef’s knife.
  3. Coat the bottom of a tart pan or cast-iron skillet with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the turnip slices evenly across the pan or skillet, and a layer of onion rounds on high. Season with salt and cracked black pepper. Then add one other layer of turnip slices, with somewhat extra salt and pepper.
  4. Bake the ‘tart’ for about 45 minutes lined, till the veggies are tender. Take away the quilt, and let it brown within the oven for one more 10-15 minutes or so.
  5. Flip the tart onto a plate, and let it cool barely earlier than including recent chopped dill, and a squeeze of lemon juice/ zest on high!
