Turnips - I Just Can't Love Them

Saturday, October 02, 2010

I consider myself a very vegetable friendly person. I'll eat everything on my plate. Broccoli is my friend. But, I just can't love turnips.

I tried roasting them - but no.

I tried boiling and mashing them. The house needed some serious airing out after that.

As they bolted to seed in the spring heat last week, I heaved a sigh of relief and planned to plant swedes in their place next time. Though, they were pretty.

    Hey... I'm Greek and we eat the turnips raw just as a snack. To give them some umph put some lemon juice and salt on them... yum. We also eat them raw as an accompaniment with lentil soup. Have a try ... lovely and fresh.... can't imagine them cooked at all!!!

  3. I was just going to say.. eat them raw with some humus etc... but someone already did!!
