Did you know?
Turnips are so common in the European diet that it’s usually grouped up with root vegetables like potatoes and beets. Did you know that it’s actually a member of the cruciferous family of veggies? That’s right! The turnip is a cousin of cauliflower and broccoli, and like its family members, turnips pack in a high amount of nutrients without packing on the calories. A single cup of cooked turnip, for example, provides about 4 grams of fiber, a healthy amount of vitamin C, and can even play a role in fighting cancer. And that’s just from eating the root!
