I keep seeing beautiful turnips at the market and I love their purple color. Turnips don’t have a great reputation, but their flavor is actually delicious, like a cross between kohlrabi and radishes. They can be eaten raw or cooked, and they make great fries too. And they are available throughout the winter. In my search for recipes to use them I came across this turnip burger on Food 52, which sounded delicious. I also took veggie burger inspiration from Nourish Atelier, a beautiful blog (and now cookbook!), which has several amazing burger recipes. The result was the most delicious veggie burger we ever had. Hope you enjoy it too!
Socca is a delicious, light but flavorful chickpea-flour pancake from Southern France (and similar things exist in other countries of course, Italy for example, where it’s called farinata). It’s actually street food, so it’s simple and easy to make and tastes great even without any special toppings. A little ground cumin in the dough helps to enhance the slightly earthy chickpea flavor, and sea salt and olive oil round it off.
