Turnips are one of our favorite vegetables to make. We picked up our most recent batch from our local farmers market. They always give us a taste of something new. We recommend sautéing your turnips — you will love them!  Below is our recipe for sautéed Japanese turnips, a great addition to any meal.

Ingredients

  • 4 white Japanese turnips
  • 1/2 Cup fresh sage, chopped
  • Butter, to taste
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste

Directions

Chop off ends of turnip so flat surface on each side.

Carefully using a mandolin, slice all of your turnips into nice “chip-thin” pieces.

Heat a large sauté pan and add small dollop of butter to coat bottom.

Add about a half cup of the turnips so they cover the pan.

Sauté the turnips for about 5 minutes each.

While sautéing, sprinkle about a tablespoon of sage into each batch and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Sauté turnips until the ends are golden brown.

Repeat steps 3- 8 until you have sautéed all of your turnips.
