Townsville's Favourite

Turnip

Dig up the earthy, slightly sweet flavour of our fresh turnips. Perfect for a variety of dishes, turnips can be roasted, mashed, or even added to stews. Their mild yet distinct flavour pairs well with herbs and spices. For a quick recipe, try roasting turnip wedges with olive oil and rosemary, or mash them with butter for a creamy side dish.

Selecting the freshest turnips is simple with these tips. Look for turnips that are firm and heavy for their size. The skin should be smooth and free from blemishes, cuts, or soft spots. Smaller turnips tend to be sweeter and more tender, while larger ones are great for roasting and mashing. Avoid turnips with wilted or yellowing leaves. A fresh turnip will have a mild, earthy aroma and a crisp texture​​.

Turnips are incredibly versatile and can be enjoyed in many delicious ways. Roast turnip cubes with olive oil, salt, and thyme for a tasty side dish. Make a creamy turnip soup by blending cooked turnips with broth and spices. You can also add turnip slices to stews and casseroles for extra flavour and nutrition. For a unique twist, try pickling turnip slices with vinegar, sugar, and spices for a tangy addition to salads and sandwiches.
