My husband's family always made mashed carrots and turnips as part of Thanksgiving dinner. Instead of using butter and milk when I mash mine, I use organic chicken broth. Salt and pepper to taste. Simple, delicious, nutritious side dish. :-)

I like the smaller ones. I think they are sweeter. I slice them up raw and use them as dippers for spinach deep.

I will also slice them up thin and make turnip chips, I just use them in place of potato chips. I make them in the microwave with just a little bit of olive oil and sea salt.

My sis makes an excellent cream of turnip soup with turnips.

if you boil the and whip them with mashed potatoes it jazzes up the normal everyday mashed potatoes and also gets you the nutrition of the turnip :-)

just roastind them with carrots and fresh herbs s delicious or in a root veggie medley! :-)

Im sure spark has some recipes as well.

I'm in the same boat. Does anyone have any good turnip recipes?

turnips are one of the veggies I am not sure what to do with -- I use them in my vegetable soup recipe but other than that I am not so sure what to do with them.
