This is a really good side dish when serving a roast beef. I love the flavor of turnips. If you prefer rutabagas you can substitute them for the turnip.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Steam turnips over boiling water until fork tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. Drain turnips and place in a food processor or blender along with pear, garlic, and margarine.

I did like them, but the bf gave them 2.5 stars as we are trying out different ways to eat turnips. I personally believe that the pear taste maybe was what threw them off for him, but I quite enjoyed the difference. I really think that if the pear was excluded they might be better. I will try that next time. Thanks for the inspiration!
