Peppery turnips make a nice alternative to potatoes for mashed vegetables. If desired, you can substitute potatoes for half the turnips.
Glad I found this...I am trying to cut back on potatoes one of my favs, so I tried the mashed turnips and they were just as good as mashed potatoes. I did add a bit of bacon grease in the water, and some margarine while they cooked. They did seem to drain "water" after I mashed them but I just stirred them up again. Very good recipe and will be making it lots more. - 28 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
in our family we add even ammounts of carrots and turnip. The carrots add a bit of sweetness. This is a must for all of our holiday dinners. It has been in our family forever. Thanks for sharing - 30 Apr 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I have to admit I was a little leary about mashed turnips ... but they are actually very good. I think next time I will cut back on the liquid a little. They turned out a little too wet ~ so maybe a half of a cup instead. Otherwise they are a great addition to our recipe box. Perfect for a Atkin's friendly meal!! Thanks so much!! - 19 Mar 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
