Milan-style turnip gratin

Ideal as an accompaniment to grilled red meats. Use the poultry stock to get an even more tasty recipe.

Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 1 kg young turnips
  • 100 g Parmesan
  • 4 to 5 tbsp meat juices, fat removed
  • 30 g butter
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley.
  • Salt, pepper


  • Peel the turnips and cook them in boiling salted water for around 15 minutes (cooking times will vary depending on size, but they should stay slightly firm).
  • Drain, leave until cool enough to handle and cut into slices.
  • Arrange in a buttered gratin dish in overlapping layers and sprinkle with grated Parmesan.
  • Pour over the meat juices and bake in a hot oven for around 10 minutes.
  • Melt the butter, season, add the chopped parsley and pour over the turnips; return the dish to the oven for a few minutes.
