Turnips are root vegetables which go well with stir-fried dishes, but the part that I like most is the leaves. Turnip greens are not just great with salads, but they rich in vitamins in essential nutrients as well.
Here is a quick list of the vitamins that you can get from one cup of cooked turnip greens:
• Vitamin A
• Vitamin B1, B2, B3, B5 and B6
• Vitamin C
• Vitamin E
• Vitamin K
They are also a great source of folate, manganese, dietary fibers, potassium, iron and omega 3 fatty acids. All these components help make turnip greens helpful for those with rheumatoid arthritis. It also helps promote the health of your lungs and the colon while improving mental health.
To take advantage all that healthy goodness, it is best to enjoy turnip greens fresh instead of canned – and use them in your sautéed vegetable recipe. They can also be cooked with beans and rice, or added in vegetarian lasagna.
