A simple and easy recipe using Japanese Turnips!

These are the beautiful vegetables that I bought at the farmer’s market, Japanese turnips and red onions.  I used them in two very simple recipes, perfect for when you don’t have much time but want to make something healthy!

I sliced up the turnips thinly and soaked them in lemon juice for about 30 minutes. I thinly sliced the red onion as well. I then put everything on top of arugula and made a simple dressing with olive oil, rice vinegar, salt and pepper.

I love Japanese turnips but my favorite part is their leaves and stems.  They are slightly bitter and crunchy.  I sautéed them with red onions and a bit of sea salt.  I sauté them very quickly because I like to eat them when they are still crunchy and not mushy!
