1. Peel the turnips and cut into 4 strips vertically. Mince the garlic and cut the chicken breast into bite-sized pieces. Flavor with salt and pepper, and coat with flour.
2. Add the olive oil and garlic to a pot and cook on medium heat. Once the garlic becomes aromatic add the turnips and cook. Once they become transparent add the ★ ingredients, put the lid on, and simmer to soften.
3. Start boiling your spaghetti here.
4. Once the turnips from Step 2 have softened, add the chicken from Step 1 and simmer until evenly cooked. Add salt while checking the flavor of the yuzu pepper, and add coarsely-ground black pepper last.
5. Boil the spaghetti al dente, and drain thoroughly. Transfer to a serving dish and pour the turnip soup from Step 4 over it. Top with green onions and it's complete.
6. If you like, you can top it with virgin olive oil just before eating. It is also delicious.
