The Meatball Shop’s Daniel Holzman loves these delicately flavored root vegetables, and if anything can change your mind about the oft-maligned orbs, it’s his mashed-turnip recipe, pleasingly chunky and slightly sweet, with a nice horseradish bite.


2 pounds turnips

1/2 bunch scallions, thinly sliced

2 tbs. freshly grated horseradish

1/2 cup sour cream

2 tsp. salt


(1) Trim the ends off the turnips. (2) Peel and (3) cut into quarters. Place them in a pot, and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer until turnips are fork-tender, about 25 minutes. Strain until completely dry. Place the turnips in a large bowl while they’re still hot, and add the remaining ingredients. Mash with a whisk or a potato masher until well combined but still chunky. (Published 2012)
