I find a lot of people making cauliflower mashed ” potatoes” these days. Another fun recipe you can make when you are craving that sort of food is mashed turnips. Although it has a very distinct taste ,unlike the cauliflower, I find it rather tasty. It is a great side dish.
7 medium turnips (3 lbs. total), washed, peeled, and quartered
½ c unflavored, unsweetened almond milk
2 tbsp. butter
2 tsp. salt
pepper to taste
1 tsp. freshly-minced parsley
1. Steam turnips in large saucepan until tender (20-25 minutes).
2. Place in mixing bowl. Mash with hand masher. Set aside.
3. Combine almond milk, butter and salt in small saucepan over high heat until liquid is reduced by half (about 5 minutes).
4. Pour liquid into mixing bowl with turnips and whip with electric mixer on lowest setting until smooth but not puréed.
5. Season with pepper. Garnish with parsley.
