Grilled Baby Turnips

Active Time: 15 minutes   |   Total Time: 15 minutes   |   Serves 4  |  Vegan  |  Gluten Free

  • 1 bunch baby turnips with bright green tops (about 12)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

Trim the tails from the turnips and pull away any discolored leaves.

Boil the turnips for 10 to 12 minutes, until they can be easily pierced with the tip of a paring knife (you want them tender but not soft). Drain them into a colander and pass under cold water to stop the cooking.

Heat the grill to medium-high.

Cut the turnips in half through the tops. Put them on a plate or sheet pan. Drizzle with the oil and sprinkle with the salt and pepper.

Grill the turnips cut side down for 5 to 6 minutes, until charred. Turn them and cook 1 to 2 minutes more. Remove them before the tops completely char (a little is okay).
