I don't know if this is a novel idea, but using turnip slices to 'carry' some salsa or guacamole works just fine as a munchy appetizer while waiting for the rest of supper to be made and surprisingly, actually tastes great!
Hmmm, I can hear it now - 'tastes great!', 'less filling!', 'tastes great!', 'less filling!', ad nauseum......sorry about that.........it just fell out! :-)
Seriously, when pulled while still small, and sliced thin when much bigger, turnips are an alternative tasty way to eat other delicious and health-promoting Brassica vegetables just in case you might get tired of eating kale or more likely, not have any kale on hand.

Where kale (and a turnip slice) is more than decoration on my plate!
