Sautéed 'Teriyaki' Turnips

Hinona Kabu turnips have thin, elongated roots with vibrant purple-red and bright white tips. The edible leaves are dark green with red veins, growing straight up from the tuber. The roots boast a mild spicy and sweet flavor; a mix of turnip with a hint of radish.  Turnips are a good source of vitamin C and contain calcium, potassium, and a small amount of phosphorus. Hinona Kabu turnips can be eaten both raw, served in salads, pickled or cooked.
