Turnips tend to be looked at as the stepchild of winter vegetables, heckled for being bland and boring, but we disagree. The next time you are at the Farmer’s Market take a second look at this duel purpose vegetable: both the root and greens are edible. Turnips can replace potatoes in a recipe, can be pureed for a soup or enjoyed raw in a salad.
Chorizo and Turnip Tacos– If you try only one recipe, I suggest this one. Tacos with a picadillo like filling of chorizo, diced turnips and sliced onions. The chorizo and turnip filling is spicy and rich, and the sliced radish garnish give these tacos a great crunch.
