Mashed turnips recipe provided by Courtney Swan
Meet the least well-known veggie of the cruciferous family – the turnip. Akin to broccoli, brussels sprouts, arugula, and kale, turnips are nutrient-rich and low in calories. They are also high in soluble fiber, making them a great food to improve your gut biome. Like other green zone foods on the Bulletproof Diet Roadmap, they are low-histamine, anti-inflammatory veggies that fuel your body to function at its peak.
These mashed turnips are simply prepared with grass-fed butter and Himalayan pink salt, so you’ll actually taste the turnip. And that’s a good thing, so long as you choose your turnips wisely and cook them properly. The keys? Select turnips that are the size of a tennis ball – any larger than that and they’ll be bitter. As well, use plenty of water when boiling, so as to boil the bitterness away. A unique and healthful dish with no mess, no fuss, and minimal cook time.
