Low carb mashed turnips is a great comfort food and also a good substitute for potatoes for those trying to keep their carb intake low.  It is also very versatile and marries well with things like finely chopped sauteed spring onion, chives, or even crispy bacon bits.  Even the most fussiest of eaters will find it hard to believe that turnips can taste so good!
