Also known as Shalgam. Turnips are a cool-weather root vegetable than can be eaten raw when young. They have a sweet nutty flavour.  In winter Shalgam Gosht is a very popular dish in Pakistan. Mix diced turnip with sugar snap peas and mint leaves and toss with rice wine vinaigrette.  For refreshing cold gazpacho soup that takes five minutes or less to make, simply purée turnip, tomatoes, green peppers and onions, then add salt and pepper to taste. Add diced turnip to tuna fish or chicken salad recipes. About 100 gm of turnip root contains just 30 calories, and contains Vitamin C. The leaves contain fewer calories – 23 per 100 gm, and are rich in Thiamine and Vitamin C. Turnips are also a good source of riboflavin, magnesium, carotene, manganese, folate, calcium and iron.
