Thumbs up

Hi, all. I have just (accidentally) discovered the most amazing mashed potato substitute: mashed turnip! Take a turnip (not the yellow kind, rutabaga, which is higher in carbs and stronger tasting, but the white/purple kind). Peel it, cube it, steam it, mash it, mix in a dollop of mayo, some grated Parmesan, and some salt/pepper. Yum! and only 4.4 carbs/cup. The turnips are good raw too, crunchy!

i've been making mashed potatoes out of cauliflower. i was wondering what turnips would be like. i really like turnips, but i'm not too crazy about rutabagas. i'm glad you posted this idea. i will definitely try it.

Try it with daikon radish too. I'm on the edge of Chinatown which is daikon central so I use a lot of it. Daikon is quite inexpensive too. It is great roasted with garlic and herbs.

Smile Daikon

Hi, Karen. Unfortunately I live near Stanley Park, where the shopping is 'ho hum' Central. Most of the denizens wouldn't know what a daikon was if it came up and bit them. "Oh! That vegetable bit me! . . . must be a daikon, then." Scuze me, I'm wandering . . . However, I shall look harder. 1000+ sushi restaurants must get their ingredients SOMEWHERE.
