Flavorful turnips and savory miso are one of my favorite combinations. They make a great side dish for steak or pork, or can even stand up as the centerpiece of a vegetarian meal.
Using sous vide to glaze turnips is a simple process that results in a great side dish, especially when combined with umami-rich miso. You can also briefly cook turnips and their juices in a pan after sous viding them to reduce the sauce for a richer dish. This recipe also works well for other root vegetables such as carrots, radishes, and parsnips.
