I had 2 turnips sitting on my counter washed for 2 weeks trying to figure out how to cook it! The color and texture didn’t change at all as a sign of high antioxidants contents in this nutrient-dense food. I am so glad that I finally made it today! It was incredibly yummy and delicious! The natural sweetness from turnips combined with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and simple herbs and peanuts, OMG, sooooooo good!
Did you know that Turnips are loaded with fiber and vitamins K, A, C, E, B1, B3, B5, B6, B2, and folate (one of the B vitamins), as well as minerals like manganese, potassium, magnesium, iron, calcium and copper? They are also a good source of phosphorus, omega-3 fatty acids and protein.
High in fiber, the turnip may help to reduce inflammation of the colon as well as the risk of diverticulosis. Similarly, a diet filled with vegetables high in fiber can help to relieve constipation and promote regularity. Research has shown that those who consume high amounts of cruciferous vegetables have a lowered risk of developing cancer, thanks to the compound sulforaphane, noted Medical News Today.
