Steamed Tokyo Turnips

Finished with your choice of toppings, steamed turnips make for a simple, delicate side.

Ingredients:
2 bunches Tokyo turnips, with greens
Sea salt, lemon juice, olive oil, soy sauce or vinegar for serving

Method:
1. Separate turnips and greens. Rinse turnips and wash greens. Remove any yellow or damaged leaves and discard. Quarter both turnips and greens.
2. Place a steamer basket in a saucepan with a tight-fitting lid; add enough water so that it reaches a depth of about ½ inch. Bring water to a boil over high heat. Add turnips and greens to steamer basket, cover, and cook until tender, 5 to 8 minutes. Serve with desired toppings.
