If you are tired of using cauliflower as a keto substitute for poatoes, then turn to the lowly turnip. Turnips resemble potatoes more and can be cooked with bacon to look just like a plate of breakfast potatoes.

Some people find turnips too bitter so here are a couple of tips:

1 – Young Turnips vs. Old Turnips

Fact: Only mature turnips taste bitter. Young turnips are white and/or purple whereas an older turnip has more of a pink color. Also, younger turnips are not as round as the more mature turnips which are in the shape of a baseball.


2 – Refrigerate Before Cooking

If you have a more mature turnip, then you can peel the skin off as best you can and chop the turnip into quarters. Place in a container with a cover. Add a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper and mix the chopped pieces and place in refrigerator. Let them sit for about an hour. This should take away the bitterness from the turnips.


  • 1 large turnip
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • a dash of garlic powder & salt
  • parsley
  • ½ onion
  • 2 slices bacon, raw, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


1. In a skillet add the turnips and spices, cook for 5-6 minutes, add onion and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
2. Chop the bacon and add to the skillet, cook for another 2-3 minutes.
3. Remove to a place and top with parsley before serving.
