Braides Turnip:

1. Peel turnips and split in half, cutting them into the shape of a puck. Cook the trim, but not the peelings, with 3 tbsp toasted sunflower seeds until soft. Puree together and season with salt.

2. Sear the turnips in a pan, using a neutral oil, like grapeseed. Once they had achieved a nice golden color add two tablespoons of honey. When the honey begins to caramelize and 1 cup of orange juice and half a cup of lemon juice. Place a cartouche over the turnips and reduce heat to a simmer, adding water if the braising liquid gets to thick until tender. remove turnips and reduce braising liquid down to a glaze.

3. Glaze the turnips and finish with lemon zest, parsley.  Cover the turnip with the puree, and sprinkle the sunflower seeds on top.

4. Place the turnip in the bowl and cover with the sprouts. Pour consommé
