Five Paleo Turnip Recipes

Last week I went to the store to find turnips and had to ask someone what they looked like.  I am not sure that I have seen one and definitely have not tasted one. 

I found a plethora of information on Alive about turnips.

  • Are native to Western Asia
  • Were used for cooking before Potatoes were
  • Are a part of the cruciferous vegetable family
  • Have disease-preventing phytochemicals. Studies have shown that these compounds help the body both ward off and detoxify cancer-causing substances. 
  • Are low in calories 
  • A good source of calcium and iron, and high in vitamin C. 
  • The smaller the turnip, the sweeter the taste.
Turnip Nutrition facts. After reading all of these facts I knew that I had to try some recipes. Here are 5 that I just made.
1. Bacon, Spinach,Tomato and Turnip Salad
I simply shredded the turnips on top of the salad. 
 I love the peppery taste of the turnip!

 Garlic Mashed Turnips
Oven Roasted Turnips
Oven Roasted Turnips sprinkled with almond flour
Pan fried turnips in Bacon fat
2Garlic Mashed Turnips

8 small-medium white turnips (peeled)
2 Tbsp Ghee
1 Tb Garlic
1/4 cup almond or coconut milk
Celtic sea salt
Black pepper

Peel turnips and cut into cubes, boil till tender. Combine all ingredients into a food processor.

I like it better than mashed cauliflower!

3. Oven Roasted Turnips
4. Oven Roasted Turnips sprinkled with almond flour

One medium turnip
Seasoning of your choice (I like Mrs. Dash or Tajin)
Almond flour

Cut turnip into fries, coat with olive oil, sprinkle with seasoning. (Add almond flour if desired. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes or until crisp.

I liked the ones with almond flour better!

5. Pan fried turnips in Bacon fat.

1 Medium turnip cut into slices
Bacon Fat

Heat pan with Bacon fat add turnips and cook away! When finished season with salt and pepper.

I loved these!  They hardly made it to my plate! 
Let's just say that Turnips are good for you and tasty!  I am sure that there will be more recipes of this tasty veggie!

What I learned
Just like there are many ways to make turnips, there are many ways to be the Church. For some it means meeting in a small wooden church deep in the countryside. For others it means sitting under a thatched roof in the dirt and for many it means meeting secretly to pray and worship together. 

The church is not where we meet, but who we are. We are the body of Christ.

Enjoy your time meeting together wherever you are today!
