Healthy Turnip Recipes

As promised, here are Ryan's healthy recipes for the veggie of the month: turnips!

Mashed Turnatoes
1 Large Turnip, peeled and cubed
3 white potatoes, peeled and cubed
¼ cup milk
2 tbls. unsalted butter
Salt and Pepper to taste
diced onions (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place turnip and potatoes in a large pot with enough water to cover, and bring to a boil. Cook 25 to 30 minutes, until tender. Remove from heat, and drain. Mix the milk and 2 tablespoons butter with the turnip and potatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Mash until slightly lumpy. Transfer turnip mixture to a small baking dish. Cover loosely, and bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven.
Remove cover, and continue baking about 8 minutes, until lightly browned.

Turnip and Carrot Soup
2 tbsp. chopped onion
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
1 qt milk
1 c grated raw carrots
1 c grated raw turnips
Salt and Pepper to taste

Saute onion in butter for a few minutes. Blend in flour; add milk gradually, carrots and turnips, salt and pepper. Cook stirring frequently, until carrots and turnips are tender, about 10 minutes. Serves 4.

Give them a try and let us know how they turn out!
