Screen Shot 2016-07-18 at 8.15.40 PM


  • 6 Tbs. olive oil; more for the grill
  • 2 cloves garlic, mashed to a paste with the side of a knife
  • 1 large jalapeño, seeded and minced (3 Tbs.)
  • 2 Tbs. fish sauce
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 medium red onion, trimmed, peeled, and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick rounds, kept intact
  • 1 lb. broccoli raab, tough bottom stalks trimmed
  • Lemon wedges, for serving


In a small bowl, combine 3 Tbs. of the oil, the garlic, jalapeño, and fish sauce. Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes to meld the flavors. Season to taste with salt.

Meanwhile, heat a charcoal or gas grill to medium (350°F to 375°F).

Clean and oil the grill. Brush the onion rounds with 1 Tbs. of the oil. Grill the onion, turning occasionally, until charred and slightly softened, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board, tent with foil, and set aside.

In a large bowl, toss the broccoli raab with the remaining 2 Tbs. oil. Grill the broccoli raab, turning occasionally, about 4 minutes. Transfer to the cutting board with the onion and let rest for about 5 minutes.

Cut the broccoli raab into 4-inch pieces and coarsely chop the onion. Transfer back to the bowl and toss with enough dressing to coat. Arrange on a platter and serve with lemon wedges and the remaining dressing on the side.

Screen Shot 2016-07-18 at 8.26.09 PM
  • Bunch of turnips
  • 1/4 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoons sugar
  • Kosher salt


Place turnips in a large skillet; add water to cover turnips halfway.  Add butter, sugar and a large pinch of salt; bring to a boil.  Cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid is syrupy and turnips are tender, about 15 minutes.  If turnips are tender before liquid has reduced, used a slotted spoon to transfer turnips to a plate and reduce liquid until syrupy.  Return turnips to pan and stir to coat well.

You can add turnip greens to the skillet.  Cook over a medium heat, stirring occasionally until just wilted, 2-3 minutes. Season with salt.

  • 3 cups fresh Thai or regular basil leaves
  • cooked jasmine rice, optional for serving

Serve over rice.
