Grilled Turnip Recipes

The ideal farm to table recipe that is simple to prepare is grilled hakurei turnips and radishes, which are both delicious and use fresh ingredients.

I have been purchasing fresh produce, baked goods, pickles, preserves, meat, and other items at a neighborhood REKO network market over the past few weeks.

After asking the farmer, I learned that the red and white radishes I previously ordered were actually Hakurei turnips rather than radishes.

I always include turnips in a stew even though I dislike radish (except in potato salad) and I wanted to find a new way to enjoy them.

I had to decide what to do with the radishes because I didn’t want to eat them raw or pickle them; instead, I thought grilled radishes would be a great idea.

Cut turnips into 1/4” disks. Toss the sliced turnips in olive oil, salt, pepper, smoked paprika. Grill on high, 2-4 minutes on each side until fork tender. Plate with aioli on the side for dipping.

Do you have to peel turnips before cooking?

Try turnips baked or boiled in stews, soups, and stir-fries, or lightly steamed with some butter, salt, or lemon juice for flavor. Use turnips in all the ways you would use potatoes, and then some.

How should turnip be cooked?

If you have a larger turnip, bigger than two to three inches, you should peel the turnip because bigger turnips tend to have a more bitter skin. Turnip peels are safe to eat, but you can peel a turnip using a vegetable peeler if you prefer.
