The better turnip: White Japanese turnips

Japanese Turnips with Miso: This recipe uses both the greens and the roots and pairs it with rich butter, sweet mirin, and salty miso.
Baby White Turnip Salad with Toasted Pecans and Bacon: A lovely salad that dresses the mild root with a lot of flavorful additions and a simple dressing of balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
Simple White Turnip Sauté: This dish uses white wine and butter and olive oil for a simple dish.
Roasted Radishes, Hakurei Turnips and Scallions: Basic, flexible guidelines for roasting which gives a more complex and sweet result. One small change I would recommend would be to roast with a different oil or fat than the toasted sesame oil. Save the toasted sesame oil for flavoring the vegetables when they are done cooking.
