Mashed Potatoes Lookalike (Mashed Squash and Turnip)

Submitted by: LADYARCHER3

Introduction

Actually, you can use any combination of root vegetables with turnips to create an assortment of mashed goodies containing all kinds of vitamins and minerals. Some people add a little brown sugar to hide the turnip but I like the nutty flavor turnips add to the mix. I also like mixing turnips with sweet potatoes (American yams).

Ingredients

    - 1Turnip, chopped into same size pieces
    - 1Butternut squash, chopped into same size pieces (or a sweet potato/yam, or 2 regular potatoes)
    - 2 Tbsp Soy Garden natural buttery spread, or equivalent

Directions

Chop turnip and other root vegetable(s) into same-size pieces. Place all together in steamer and steam over high heat until soft and ready to mash. Drain, return to pan and mash together with buttery spread, peels and all. The peels add nutrients and taste good, and the turnips retain enough moisture that they will make the mixture creamy, so you don't need to add any milk or cheese (although, cheese would be good too!).

The fat in this recipe is all the margarine. To take out the fat, take out the margarine.

Salt and pepper to taste and serve. Makes 4 1-cup servings.

Number of Servings: 4
