How To Cook Turnips

You can buy turnips at almost any store or market, and this nutritious vegetable can add a surprising flavor to any dish. Fresh turnip is like radish, and a cooked is similar to potato. You can stew turnips, grill them, blanch, bake them or even eat them fresh.


  • turnip — 4 pcs.
  • water — 6-8 tbsp.
  • salt (to taste).


Choose a nice even turnip. Rinse it.

Peel and slice it in thin circles. Set the stove on 160-180 degrees Celsius.

Put it in a crock, add salt and a few tablespoons of water. You need just a little water, so that your turnip became steamed, not boiled.

Or you can do it an even easier way: put the sliced turnip in a baking sleeve and add salt and a few spoonfuls of water.

Make a small hole in the baking sleeve (for letting excess steam out).

Place the crock or the sleeve on an oven tray. Put it into the stove for 1-1.5 hours.

Take the cooked turnip out of the crock or the sleeve. Butter it. You can add garlic, onion, some greenery or mustard. If you put turnip slices on bread, you will get a lean sandwich.

A sweettooth may eat the turnip with honey or jam.
