A Plate Full Of Turnips

Autumn is such a perfect time for root vegetable. You should add as many roots  to your diet as possible. 

Root vegetable are high in complex carbohydrates and fiber. They are also very rich in minerals and other nutrients that they absorb from the soil they grown in. Remember to buy organic root veggies since they also absorb heavy metals and other chemicals.

Turnips are members of the cruciferous family. They are rich in cancer fighting phytochemicals. These nutrients help protect the body from cancer causing substances and detoxify carcinogens already present.

Turnips are rich in vitamin C, B vitamins, calcium, copper, manganese, silica and iron.

A plate full of turnips is probably the simplest way to enjoy this rather delicate vegetable. Quick and easy, and most importantly, low tech recipe that can be executed in any kitchen within minutes.

If this dish looks boring to you simply add some water cress or some micro-greens.

  • 2 medium large turnips
  • Celtic salt - best if you have a mill
  • 2 Tbsp cold pressed organic grape seed oil
  • 1 Tbsp freshly pressed grapefruit juice
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste (optional)

  • Wash and peel the turnips. The peel is rather hard to chew, so I suggest you remove it.
  • Cut turnips into very thin slices and arrange on individual plates.
  • Sprinkle turnip slices and set aside.
  • Whisk a delicate dressing using grape seed oil and grapefruit.
  • Pour dressing over the turnips. Sprinkle with freshly ground pepper. Ready! And as always, enjoy in good company.
