Moroccan Spiced Turnips

We added diced chicken to this and served it over rice with a dollop of plain yogurt on top.  Soooo good!  Great way to spice up plain turnips for those who are not big fans.

2-3 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup shallots (or onions), sliced
1 cup carrots, peeled and sliced
1 pound turnips, peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons tomato paste
salt and pepper to taste
3/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 +/- teaspoon cayenne powder (to taste)
1 cup chicken broth

Heat oil in large skillet.  Add shallots and carrots and saute until beginning to soften, about 5-7 minutes, stirring.  Add the rest of the ingredients and stir to mix the flavors around.  Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook covered until turnips are tender, about 20 minutes.  Check salt and serve hot!
