Turnips are one of those vegetables that I rarely use. I buy them only when I’m making a minestrone soup. To me they’re like radishes, nice in theory but once I have them I don’t know what to do with them. When I got a vegetable box with a bunch of turnips I decided to challenge myself to use them in a way I had never done before. In other words, not in a soup.
I ended up adding them to potatoes and onions and creating a chunky turnip and potato mash. The flavour of the turnip is there but not overwhelming and it’s the perfect base to add mini meatballs and tiny roasted butternut cubes.
