Nutrition Tip of the Week: Try a Turnip!

Way back in the springtime we planted turnips in Grandpa’s Garden. All summer these tiny humans helped in the garden by watering and pulling weeds, and now we get to eat all the things they grew. One of the seeds they planted grew up into this giant turnip!

How do you cook a turnip?

Turnips don’t taste very good if they are raw, but they can be roasted, boiled, mashed or put into soup. They also have helpful vitamins like Vitamin C, Potassium, and have dietary fiber to keep your guts going strong. Since its October, we decided to make Spooky Roasted Turnips! Want to try?

What if your turnips are too small to be ghosts, or you decide to roast them in January? They roast well in just about any shape, and pair well with most root veggies and winter veggies! These veggies are a yummy side for chicken and beef or can be stirred into a soup!
