Holiday Turnip Mash

This is an easy way to add a new twist to your mashed potatoes. Turnips add an interesting spicy flavor and the carrots add some nice color and a bit of sweetness. You can make this in advance and place in a covered casserole dish, keeping it in a warm oven at about 200 degrees.

Ingredients

  • 4 large turnips, peeled and chopped into 2-inch pieces
  • 4 large potatoes, preferably Yukon Gold, peeled and chopped into 2-inch pieces
  • 6 -8 large carrots, chopped into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 1 stick salted butter
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • sprig of fresh parsley or thyme, for garnish (optional)

Directions

Place all of the vegetables in a stockpot with about 2 inches of water along with the bouillon cubes. (You may choose to place the carrots in first and cook for about 5 minutes before adding the potatoes and turnips, as the carrots take longer to cook.) Cook over medium heat for about 20-30 minutes until all vegetables are tender, and drain thoroughly.

Mash the vegetables together in a large bowl. Add the half-and-half, butter, salt, and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning. Use a whisk to get the lumps out and smooth out the texture. Garnish with sprigs of fresh parsley or thyme, if using. Serve.

Holiday Cooking Tip

Balance the amount of dishes prepared ahead and those put together last minute – serve cold dishes made in advance as well as items straight from the stove.
