Beyond Mashed Potatoes

rockin' rosemary turnips with carmelized onions
If you like mashed potatoes, chances are you’ll fall in love with this new and exciting twist on an old favorite. Rockin’ Rosemary Turnips is a dish is packed with flavor and nutrients. Topped off with carmelized onions, it’s absolutely irresistable. Trust me.

Turnips are loaded with Vitamin C. Plus, they provide only 1/3 of the calories of an equal amount of potatoes. Need I say more? Go get some turnips, and get cooking!

Rockin’ Rosemary Turnips

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup thinly sliced onions
1 pound turnips, peeled and quartered
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon crushed rosemary, divided
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium-low heat. Add onions, and stir to coat with olive oil. Cook 15 minutes, or until slightly browned. While onions are cooking, boil or steam turnips for 20 minutes or until tender. Mash until smooth (like mashed potatoes), and stir in 1/4 tsp rosemary. Keep warm until ready to serve. Add garlic and the other 1/4 tsp rosemary to onion in skillet. Cook 1-2 minutes, and serve with mashed turnips.
Yield: 4 servings (serving size: about 1/2 cup)
