Serves: 8
  • 1 pound turnips, peeled and cubed
  • 1 pound potatoes, (any starchy variety, peeled and cubed
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 gala apples, peeled and diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  1. Cover the turnips and potatoes with cold water and bring to a boil. Cook until tender, about 10 minutes. While turnips and potatoes cook, heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat and saute apples until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 more minute, just until garlic is fragrant but not burned.
  2. Drain the potatoes and turnips and combine with apple mixture and butter in a large bowl. Gently mashin and add the buttermilk, stirring until creamy. Season with fresh thyme and salt and pepper to taste and pour into a casserole dish to serve. Top with crumbled bacon or pancetta. For a vegetarian version, omit bacon and top with thyme leaves for garnish.
