I like turnips almost every way I’ve tried them. This, though, is one of my favorites. You basically just treat turnips like you would treat potatoes when mashing them. Some people like to split the difference by using half potatoes and half turnips for smashing combination. (Get it…smashing???)
Wash, peel and boil turnips in salted water until soft.
Drain turnips, making sure to leave in a little bit of the boiling water for flavor.
Mash with butter, milk, salt and pepper to taste.
It’s really that easy.
