Cooking with Klaus – Pommes Boulangere & Turnips

Ingredients (for 4 people)

Pommes Boulangere
• 1 ½ pounds of potatoes peeled and diced in ½ inch cubes
• 2 small onions finely diced
• 6 cups of lamb broth (a dish often served with Lamb)
• ¼ teaspoon thyme
• ¼ teaspoon minced garlic
• ½ teaspoon salt
• ½ ground white pepper
• 1 tablespoon butter

Melt the butter in a pot on medium heat. Add onions and stir until they are glassy. Add potatoes and spices. Stir 3-4 minutes. Add lamb sauce and let it simmer for 40 minutes. Watch that you don’t run out of liquid in the pot and that the potatoes don’t stick to the bottom of pot.

• 8 turnips, peeled and sliced
• 1 onion fine diced
• 1 ½ tablespoon butter
• ¼ teaspoon salt
• ¼ teaspoon ground white pepper
• 2 tablespoon broth

Melt butter in a pan. Add onions. Let the onions get glassy before adding the turnips. Add spices and broth. Remember that broth also has spices in it so go easy with the pepper and salt until you have tasted the sauce. Put a lid on pan and let it simmer for 5-6 minutes. These are a typical side dishes served with lamb.

See you next week!
