Description

Turnips make a mashed “potato” possible on a low carb/keto diet. And this dish is very fast to make. Change it up any way you like, or smother with your favorite low carb/keto gravy. Suitable for Atkins, Keto, LCHF, low carb, diabetic, low glycemic, gluten free, grain free, sugar free, dairy free option, vegetarian option.

Ingredients

  • 1  Small (about 3 1/2 Oz. Weight Peeled) Turnip
  • 1 Tablespoon Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Shredded (Omit For Dairy Free)
  • 1 Tablespoon Bacon Crumbles, Heated (Omit For Vegetarian)
  • ½ Tablespoons Salted Butter (Or Butter Substitute For Dairy Free)
  • 1 dash Garlic Powder
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • Chopped Chives Or Green Onion, For Garnish (optional)

Preparation

This recipe makes a single serving. Multiply as needed.

Peel and cube turnip (about 1/2-inch cubes). Put in small pot, cover with water and salt lightly. Bring to full boil, then reduce heat to a low boil. Cook until turnips are fork tender, about 10 minutes.

While turnips are cooking, measure out cheese and microwave bacon crumbles to get them warm and crispy (about 15 seconds).

Drain turnips well in a sieve. Wipe put pan with paper towel, and return turnips to pan. Add butter, and garlic powder. Mash with a hand masher until smooth.

Salt and pepper to taste, and scoop onto plate. Top with cheddar and bacon crumbles. Garnish with chives or green onions, if using. Serve.
