Carrots and Turnip Mash

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and most are grain free. My family loves vegetables. Currently I don’t eat potatoes so I am always looking for another alternative. Turnips are a versatile vegetable. You can make it in so many different ways. Plus I love the taste. This mash is great alone or with a dish that has gravy. It has a nice subtle flavor that has a luxurious and smooth texture. This recipe makes eight 1/2 cup servings. It is delicious served with Keto Swedish Salmon, Keto Chicken on the CanOrange Balsamic Chicken.

4 cups cut-up turnips

2 cup carrots

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon coconut oil

1/8 teaspoon pepper

Choose a pot large enough hold the vegetables and boiling water. Cover the vegetables with boiling water. Bring the water back to a boil. Boil approximately 25 – 30 minutes. Strain out the water. Add the cooked turnips and carrots to a blender. Add salt, garlic powder, pepper and coconut oil. Blend until mashed. Remove from blender and add to a bowl. Serve as a substitute for mashed potatoes.
