Heat olive oil over medium low heat in a medium skillet. Add leeks and cook, stirring occasionally, until wilted about ten minutes. Add turnips, chicken broth and agave. Cover, reduce heat to low and cook until turnips are just tender, about 15 minutes.

Uncover and raise heat to medium. Season with salt and pepper and cook until any remaining broth is reduced to a glaze, about ten minutes. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with parsley.
