This was quite a pleasant surprise. My grandmother on my Dad’s side when she was still living used to invariably cook small new potatoes with her green beans and it was always surprisingly good, though I always thought it odd at the time. I was thinking about her beans and potatoes this week and decided to substitute a turnip and add some onion and see how that would be. Well it wasn’t potatoes, but it sure was GOOD! Delicate and sweet. Not at all turnip-tasting and really did remind me of Grandma’s beans and potatoes! So add this combo to your repertoire of green bean recipes and give this a try! This is OK for Induction, too!
