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