Also known as rutaba­gas, turnips are roots that be­long to the fam­ily of cru­cif­er­ous veg­eta­bles in­clud­ing broc­coli, cau­li­flower, brus­sels sprout, cab­bage and kale. Due to its sub­tle flavour, turnips are best paired with more strongly flavoured veg­eta­bles, and they are great roasted, sautéed, or in­cluded in a veg­etable stir fry. Turnips are also a great source of vi­ta­min C, and of­fer a slew of health ben­e­fits – they are best eaten cooked, as they of­ten taste bit­ter when raw.

The leafy greens of the turnip are also ed­i­ble and can be eaten boiled, steamed, stir-fried or grated into sal­ads.
