Mashed turnips are a lovely and healthy alternative to mashed potatoes. They look very similar, they cook very similarly, yet they fall on the green tier in 90/10 Nutrition, where mashed potatoes would be on the yellow tier.

Turnips are easy to grow, if you’re a gardener, and easy to find if you prefer to shop for your food. They’re loaded with nutrients and are relatively flavorless, so you can flavor them to your liking. They have a similar texture to potatoes.

What’s more, they are freezable if you are willing to do a little prep. We chose to cook and mash ours prior to freezing, but there are several ways to freeze turnips besides cooking and mashing.

You can also make freezable mashed sweet potatoes with this recipe.
