Turnip, Broccolini, Onion, Mushrooms – Sauteed

Ingredients, in order (without quantities):

Avocado oil (it can take high heat, and I wasn’t in the mood for sesame oil flavor today)
Cumin seeds
Turnip, sliced thin ~ 1/4 inch or so
Garlic clove, diced
shiitake mushroom, fresh, stems removed and remainder broken into pieces
Onion, chopped
Broccolini, coarsely chopped
Cracked black pepper
A hint of red pepper flakes
Enoki mushrooms, fresh

Works easiest to prep all the above in advance.

Okay, coat your pan with the oil, get it hot (medium-high heat) and add the cumin seeds.  Let them pop around a little, then  toss in the turnips.  They’ll have to cook a bit longer than the other veggies.  When they just start getting soft (flip them a few times), add the garlic and just INHALE that aroma!  When the aroma starts kicking up, toss in the shiitake, onions and broccolini and move that around some in the skillet.

Once these are all done, or essentially done, pop in the three final ingredients, and after about two more minutes, your cooking is done.

This is great eaten by itself  (which I did with a portion for lunch today).   However in the photo it is paired with a chicken thigh.

  1. I love that you tempered all sorts of veggies here – nothing infuses flavors into foods like tempering spices in hot oil non? 🙂

    Hope your St Patty’s day was fabulous!

    • Thanks! I hope you had a great St Paddy’s day. I ended up simply needing to dive into well-deserved sleep after a long several days. Which was enjoyable in itself, even if not in the expected ways.

      Hot oils do bring out the intensities of good spices!

    I have never even seen avocado oil in the market. I am definitely intrigued. Where are you able to purchase it?
