Mashed Potatoes and Turnips


Mashed Potatoes and Turnips/



















This is a tasty twist on mashed potatoes and takes no extra time. You boil the potatoes and turnip together, drain and you are ready to do the mashing. That easy! Great as a side dish or as your main starch as the center of your plate. Enjoy!

Serves 4 as a side dish or 2 as a main dish

Prep time:  15 minutes    Cook Time: 12-15 minutes


1 large turnip, peeled and chopped into 1″ pieces (approx. 2 very generous cups)

12 small potatoes (Yukon gold, approx. 1 1/2 lbs), scrubbed, chopped into 1″ pieces . I like to leave the peel on (optional)

brown rice vinegar, to taste

1/2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard (or more to taste)

1/2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast (or more to taste)

2 Tbsp. chives, finely minced

Black pepper, to taste


  • In a large pot boil potatoes and turnip together until soft
  • drain potatoes and turnips and return to pot.
  • sprinkle brown rice vinegar over potatoes, add mustard, nutritional yeast, chives and black pepper and mash. I like my mash on the chunky side.
  • add a few extra chives for serving.
