Turnips aren’t well-known in the culinary world, and their brilliant greens are even less well-known. Turnip greens can be added to braised and sautéed recipes to enhance flavor and texture. Like kale and broccoli, turnip greens are in the cruciferous vegetable family. They have a lot of vitamins and minerals and few calories. The root and leaves of the turnip are edible, but the stem and green leaves are called “turnip greens.”
