Turnip and Sweet Potato Puree

It’s been a while since I actually put any work into a good side-dish.  I’ll be honest…99.99999% of the time I’ve got either roasted brussels sprouts or sweet potato fries on the side of whatever I’m cooking.  The 21DSD, though, kinda put a damper on the sweet potatoes, so I was desperate for something besides sprouts or salad.

This was amazing.  Like, I could eat a hot bowl of this for breakfast kind of amazing.  Actually, I did.  See the bowl in the picture?  Ten minutes later it had a couple eggs on top and I was a happy girl.

I added a little sweet potato mostly so I could have an extra boost of carbs after a sprint workout I did, but it added just the right amount of sweetness to offset the bitterness in the turnips without being cloyingly sweet like straight up mashed sweet potatoes.
