Steamed Tokyo turnips are a simple, delicate side dish. This recipe from Cal Peternell -- cafe co-chef at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California -- originally appeared in "In the Green Kitchen," by Alice Waters.
Coarse salt, unsalted butter, olive oil, vinegar, soy sauce, or lemon juice, for serving
Separate turnips and greens. Rinse turnips and wash greens. Remove any yellow or damaged leaves and discard. Quarter both turnips and greens.
Place a steamer basket in a saucepan with a tight-fitting lid; add enough water so that it reaches a depth of about 1/2 inch. Bring water to a boil over high heat. Add turnips and greens to steamer basket, cover, and cook until tender, 5 to 8 minutes. Serve with desired toppings.
