LOW-CARB FRIED TURNIPS

Hands-on time: 15 minutes
Time to table: 60 minutes
Serves 4
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 pound turnips, trimmed, peeled, cut in 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt & pepper to taste
In a large skillet, heat the oil on MEDIUM HIGH until shimmery. Add the onion and stir to coat with fat. Cook for 4 - 5 minutes until onion begins to turn gold. Add the turnips and stir to coat with fat. Let cook for about 15 minutes, stirring often, reducing heat if needed to keep the turnips from burning. Add the cumin. Continue to cook for another 30 minutes or so (this long may not be needed but it worked for me) until the turnips are cooked through and beginning to caramelize. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve and enjoy!

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
