The perfect spiced addition to any meal or as a fun snack – Curried Hakurei Turnips! Use these as a base to your breakfast bowl, a fun salad topper, a side dish at dinner, or as a snack all on their own!

Digging into Week 3 bounty of Taproot Farm’s Summer CSA! I have been LOVING the abundance of Hakurei Turnips! I enjoy eating these thinly sliced as raw, crunchy treats. But, I also love roasting them up because they taste similar to potatoes (and it also cuts down on some of the bitterness)! I seasoned this creation with curry powder, which adds the perfect spiced addition to these turnips. Top with some fresh herbs and dip in some of your favorite sauces, and you’ll find there are many ways to get creative with this super easy dish! I hope you all enjoy these as much as I have – happy eating and creating!
