1. I peeled the turnips with the back of a spoon since I couldn’t find my peeler. Their skin was pretty thin so brushing with a potato scrubber would also be fine.

2. Cut turnips into 1/2″ cubes and drop into boiling water until they’re fork tender (about 10-15mins).

3. Place cooked, drained turnip cubes into your food processor with butter and seasonings to taste. Add small amounts at a time and continue to taste until it’s as you like it. You may want to add more butter as well. Spoon into a serving dish and garnish with fresh chives or store for later in a glass storage container.

Variations and other ideas:

  • Cube, boil and puree with a mix of carrots and turnips
  • Serve under a piece of broiled fish 
  • Drizzle olive oil into the puree instead of butter or garnish with olive oil
