I really like turnips, but they always seem to take a long time to boil on the stove.  I found out that they are much easier to cook in the microwave.

I wash the turnips and get rid of any rough spots.  Then I put them in a glass bowl with just a little bit of water so they won’t stick to the bottom.  If they are small, there is no need to cut them in half.  Though, I would cut larger ones in half to cut down on the time.  If you’re cooking them whole, poke a couple of holes with a fork. Put a lid on the top of the bowl, but leave an opening for the steam to escape.

Depending on the size of the turnips, microwave on high for 2 to 3 minutes.  They’ll be soft.  You can mash them or cut them up after they are cooked.
