Turnip Sausage Stew

“This is a delicious stew,” says Carma Blosser of Livermore, Colorado. “The sausage and turnips give it really special flavor.” A slice of crusty bread makes a great mop to clean up any remaining broth!

    Really simple and really delicious. Broth is thin more like a soup. I doubled the recipe, used vegetable broth instead of water, and substituted parsnips for the turnips. Really nice, healthy meal that everyone liked. Will be making regularly.

    This stew is satisfying and super simple! Used mild italian sausage instead of bulk sausage and it gave it that extra flavor. Had cheese rolls with it and it made an excellent fall lunch!
