Japanese turnips and greens

Have six small turnips with greens and some mustard greens. Any suggestions for easy/yummy dish?

  1. Are you looking specifically for a Japanese recipe, or are Japanese greens somehow different from others?

      The turnips are Japanese turnips. Just looking for ideas other than sauteing...

    2. Honestly, these turnips are so delicious on their own I don't think they need anything more than a quick steam and some butter, salt and pepper. I adore these things.

        I agree. I would just throw the greens in for the last minute of steaming.
        That said, we are having ours raw tonight as part of a cold sesame noodle salad with the turnips, radishes, snow peas, chives and kohlrabi all cut into matchstick pieces.
