    I put turnips in my roast vegetables today because of this thread.
    Haha funny. But turnips have a slight zing to them that neither a carrot nor a potato possess ... That is if I'm remembering turnips properly.

    I love turnips pickled in miso and turnip kimchee. With a streaming bowl of white rice and some ice cold green tea on a hot summer evening ... Mmm.

    They are so yummy, especially mixed with rutabaga and carrots or with greens.

    Cooked greens? Do you mean collard greens?

    Yep! With olive oil and lemon (kind of a Greek thing)
