Wednesday’s Helping: Suggestions for Turnips

A real root veggie to eat raw

The turnip is one of a handful of root veggies that can be eaten raw.  We suggest using turnips as a substitute for radishes and rutabagas in recipes.  Turnips possess a slightly bitter or peppery flavor with a natural crunch, too.  Pickled turnips are popular in Middle Eastern cooking where people serve it with falafel or kabob sandwiches.  This veggie’s qualities make it ideal for fresh salads.  If you make our turnip slaw, add it to your favorite meaty sandwich, burger, or sloppy joe sandwich.
