Golden Turnips, Organic (1lb)
Remove the greens (if they have them) immediately and store in the refrigerator in a plastic bag. Don’t throw away the greens though, they can be sautéed right along with the bulbs or used as you would spinach or other greens. Turnips will last in the fridge for at least two weeks, but we recommend that you use them sooner to avoid bitter flavors.
I generally don't peel turnips, but if you don't like the tougher skin or they are extra dirty you may want to peel them. If not, you can just scrub away any remaining dirt and chop them up.
6 Ways to Enjoy Turnips
- Substitute half the potatoes in your favorite potato dish with turnips to add flavor and reduce calories. Prepare the turnips in the same manner you would prepare the potatoes.
- Choose a healthier substitute. Cut the turnips into thin strips and bake in the oven with olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper to make a healthier version of “French fries.”
- Use raw turnips (sliced or grated) to add a crunchy texture and light flavor to sandwiches, salads or slaws.
- Turbo charge your soups. Mince the turnips and toss them into soups right before cooking , just as you would celery or onion, to add a new, rich flavor.
- Mix it up. Try mashed turnips instead of potatoes as a lower calorie alternative. Bring the turnips to a boil and once cooked, mash them together with low-fat milk, salt, and pepper until they are slightly lumpy.
- Go simple. For an easy on-the-go snack, pack sliced turnips with some of your favorite dips, such as hummus or low-fat dressing.
