Mashed turnips

Post by Dgflorida »

Has anyone here made mashed turnips? I have a lot of turnips from the garden and want to try it as an alternative to mashed potatoes. The online reviews are mixed.

We had lots of mashed turnips when I was growing up. I think that is what Mom and Dad grew up eating. If you do mash them try putting some sugar in the mash and giving it a good stir. My Hubby found straight mashed turnips not to his liking so I sometimes did a half and half with mashed potatoes.

DG, I believe you can eat cauliflower on the Keto diet and they are wonderful to put your cauliflower into a pot of water and cook until soft. Take a hand mixer and beat until creamy. I also add about a third of a block of cream cheese, a little butter and pepper to taste. If you can eat salt then add it to taste also. I can't eat salt, but I've gotten use to it and it's still good.
