Instant Pot Turnips. Make the most delicious Turnips in the Instant Pot in JUST 4 minutes. So easy to prepare and cook. Season your Instant Pot Turnips with salt and pepper for an easy side dish.
I must be honest and say that we rarely eat turnips in the Milner household. Its not that we don’t like turnips because we do, it’s just it’s a vegetable that is more expensive than other vegetables and we always have other vegetables we love more.
Often when we go grocery shopping we will buy cauliflower, broccoli and carrots. They have become our vegetable staples and as everyone in our house loves them, there will never be any complaints at mealtimes.
As part of our Meatless Monday campaign in 2018 to get people eating more vegetables we have already featured:
- Instant Pot Butternut Squash
- Instant Pot Cauliflower
- Instant Pot Broccoli
- Instant Pot Parsnips
- Instant Pot Brussel Sprouts
- Instant Pot Carrots
- Instant Pot Swede/Rutabaga
- Instant Pot Mushrooms
- Instant Pot Cabbage
In the list above those are our favourite vegetables in the order that we love them, based on the vegetables we have cooked so far in the Instant Pot. It is no wonder that we are only just featuring Instant Pot Turnips now on the blog.
Plus, turnips are very similar to swede and with swede being from the same family you will often end up buying swede instead.
Well we went shopping last week and they had a great 30% off deal on turnips (known in Portugal as Nabo) so we took the chance and bought some.

Cooking turnips in the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker is very easy. All you have to do is peel and dice and it is ready to be cooked. Add your liquid of choice, set the valve to sealing, pressure cook, and you then have delicious Instant Pot Turnips.
Though Instant Pot Turnips do need to be well seasoned. It is a rather bland vegetable to begin with, therefore season it well before and after cooking.
Then you can use our Instant Pot Turnips recipe as your base for whatever you plan to do with your turnips.
You could turn it into turnip soup, have it as a vegetable side for lunch or dinner, or even make turnip mash with it.
