Food of the Day: Turnip

Last night, I made modified garlic mashed potatoes.  With turnips.  [Picture to follow]

I like turnips as mashed potato substitutes because when pureed with a little garlic, they retain enough of their own flavor after boiling (or roasting) that it isn't necessary to add any butter (yay!).

Turnips are nutritionally very similar to beets: high folic acid, vitamin C and soluble fiber content.

I may have to break out the dehydrator and make some beet and turnip chips soon...
