The turnip is a root vegetable, closely related to cabbage and cauliflower. The interior flesh is white, while the skin can be either white, red, or some combination of the two. They can be eaten either raw or cooked.
Turnips are a great source of fiber, vitamin C, and potassium. One cup cooked provides only 34 calories, making it one of the lowest calorie root veggies! (See more turnip nutrition facts on Self.com.)
Store root veggies in a plastic bag in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator.
