what to do with japanese turnips (kabu)?

Just bought this at farmer's market - I dont want to make pickles and prefer something cooked instead of raw. Any ideas?

  1. You can thick slice them, brush with a mix of sesame oil and minced garlic, then either grill, roast, broil, or fry.
    The greens can be sauteed with garlic, onion, and mushrooms.
    Cube them and add to nearly any type of soup.
    Lightly steam them, thin slice and add to salads.

    1. Well, if after three years you are still wondering what to do with Kabu, I'd say you must like it. Try something raw - more nutritious. Grate some Kabu on a med size hole - can add shredded carrots, green onion and/or cilantro. Toss with rice wine vinegar, sesame oil and s&p - fantastic. I like the kabu - I really do.
