Yummy Mashed Turnips and Carrots

What you need: 

1 small turnip, peeled and cubed 1/2"
3 carrots, peeled and cubed 3/4"
3 tablespoons vegan margarine
dash onion powder
splash nondairy milk or creamer (I use Silk soy)
salt and pepper, to taste

What you do: 

1. Add turnip and carrot into a saucepan, and pour in water almost to cover. Boil until fork tender, about 25-30 minutes.
2. Drain turnips and carrots when easily pierced with a fork. Toss in margarine, onion powder, creamer or milk, and salt and pepper, to taste.
3. Use potato masher or electric mixer and smash/blend until squishy. Adjust seasonings as desired.
This is an old family favorite, begged for at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. I hope you like it as much as my family does!

My better half makes this for me with mashed parsnip in the mix too - gorgeous! Am thinking some oven roasted garlic might be a nice addition.  :-*


Somehow I thought this would taste a little different than it does. Still, this was a good side dish for x-mas dinner. In the future, I plan to use less margarine and perhaps an additional turnip to balance things out a bit more.
