Weight is about 0.67 lb. Turnps can be eaten raw or cooked. Sliced thin in a salad, they are mildly spicy. Cooked, turnips turn sweet, nutty, and earthy. This goes for texture, too: raw turnips have a crisp, while cooked turnips are tender and can be mashed like potatoes. Turnips can be cooked in several ways.  Roast turnips, braise turnips in butter, make turnip and potato purée, glaze turnips, or make a turnip gratin.

At only 35 calories for a 1-cup serving, turnips are packed with minerals, vitamins, protein, carbohydrates and fiber. Turnips also contain phytonutrients that may aid in the prevention of cancer and other diseases.
