Beets and turnips are served like charcuterie alongside tasty prosciutto in this gorgeous appetizer platter.



  1. Place a steamer basket at the bottom of a pot. Add just enough water to come up to the bottom of the basket. Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Place the beats in the basket and cover the pot. Steam over medium-high heat for 20 minutes. The beets will still be firm. Place the beets on a plate and let cool for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, finely slice the turnip on a mandoline. Place the turnip slices on a plate and drizzle with the oil. In a small bowl, combine the paprika and ground fennel. Season lightly with salt. Season the turnips with the spice mixture. Set aside.
  3. Peel the beets and finely slice on a mandoline. Place the beet slices on a plate and drizzle with the vinegar. Season with the pepper and fleur de sel.
  4. On a board, alternate slices of prosciutto and vegetables folding them up into flower shapes as you go. Garnish with the herbs and micro greens.


You can distinguish a white turnip from a regular turnip by its small size and violet-hued collar. White turnips have a subtle spicy bite. Don’t confuse them with rutabagas, which are generally larger, yellowish, have a violet collar and a more pronounced flavour.
