THREE
WAYS WITH

TURNIPS

One thing you can say for
certain about turnips is
that they tend to keep a
low profile. (Sorry-a little root
vegetable humor there.) But seriously
speaking, turnip greens have slowly
begun to enter the mainstream along
with trendy leafy veggies kale, chard and
arugula. But turnips themselves? Not so
much. We're here to help change that
by introducing you to the well-rounded
marvel that is the turnip.
First, there are its impressive
nutritional stats: "One medium turnip
contains more than half of your daily
recommended intake for vitamin C,"
says Rahaf Al Bochi, RDN, LD,
spokeswoman for the Academy of
Nutrition and Dietetics. "They're also
high in fiber." A medium turnip contains
2 grams of fiber, 8 grams of carbohydrates and 35 calories.
Then, there is the turnip's versatility. Not only can their greens and roots
be eaten, but turnips also hold up well
through various cooking methods and
make a great substitute for potatoes,
Al Bochi says. Here are three delicious
ways to enjoy them:

1 PICKLE THEM PINK.

"I'm originally from Syria, and pickled turnips
are really popular there, as well as across the Middle
East," Al Bochi says. "They're generally pink because
they're pickled along with beets, but you can also
pickle them alone, as you would a cucumber."

2 MAKE TURNIP FRIES.

Slice turnips in strips (just as you would with
a potato) and bake them with a little olive oil and
your favorite seasonings at 425 degrees for about
20 minutes. "Be sure not to overcrowd the pan, so
you get a good roast," Al Bochi says.

3 GO RAW IN SLAW.

Raw turnips have a slightly spicy flavor that
offers a tangy twist on traditional slaw. Start by
shredding your turnips using a grater or food processor, then add your favorite veggies, like shredded
carrots, cabbage or Brussels sprouts. Finally, dress
with a light vinaigrette and top
with sliced almonds (or sunflower or pumpkin seeds).
