Chef's pro tip
Turnips should be cooked until they are tender but still retain a slight firmness. If overcooked, they may become dark in color and develop a stronger flavor. To ensure the best results, check them after 7-8 minutes and pierce them with a fork. If the fork easily goes through, they're cooked and ready to be removed from the heat.
