It’s hard to pass up vegetables that have just come from the garden.
For the pretty Tasty Turnips dish, the turnips were boiled and mixed with seasoning, then baked with a ring of fresh parsley, green onions and bread crumbs on the top.
I try to select medium to small turnips because usually they’re milder tasting. Overcooking any turnip can make them bitter; so watch when boiling or baking them.
Turnips can be eaten raw, sliced in salads, or roasted with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. They’re best if eaten right after they’re cooked. Fresh ones are delicious boiled, sprinkled with salt and pepper, and topped with a pat of butter.
