Turnip and Apple Puree

From Anne Lindsay’s “Lighthearted Cookbook”. We first re-printed it in Hot Off the Griddle #43, September 1995.


  • 1 small turnip (about 1 1/4 lb) peeled and cubed
  • 1 large apple, peeled, cored and cut in chunks
  • 1/4 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp margarine
  • pinch nutmeg
  • salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Steam turnip for 15 to 20 minutes or until nearly tender.
  2. Add apple and cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until turnip and apple are tender.
  3. Drain well.
  4. In food processor or blender, puree turnip mixture until smooth (or mash or put through food mill).
  5. Add yogurt, margarine and nutmeg; season with salt and pepper to taste and process just until combined.
  6. Reheat in saucepan over medium low heat or in microwave until heated through.

Makes 6 servings.
