Mashed Turnips with Leeks

Pin It
4 turnips, peeled and cubed
1/4 cup milk
3 tablespoons Star Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 leeks
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Trim leeks so that about 1 1/2 inches of green leaves remain, and slice the leeks in
half lengthwise. Separate leaves and pull the leeks apart to rinse away any dirt and
sand in the layers, then chop leeks into 1 1/2-inch pieces.

Place turnip and leeks in a large pot with enough water to cover, and bring to a
boil. Cook 25 to 30 minutes, until tender. Remove from heat, and drain.

Mix milk, and 2 tablespoons STAR Extra Virgin Olive Oil with the turnip and leeks. Season with
salt and pepper. Mash until slightly lumpy.

Transfer turnip mixture to a small baking dish. drizzle with remaining STAR Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Cover loosely, and bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove cover, top with Parmesan cheese and continue baking about 8 minutes, until lightly browned.
