Serves 4
Ingredients

4 Red Bliss potatoes (1 1/2 pounds)
1 yellow turnip (about 10 ounces)
1 large clove garlic, peeled
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
3 tablespoons unsalted butter

Preparation

Peel the potatoes and turnip, and cut them into 2-inch pieces.
 
Place potatoes and turnips in a saucepan with the garlic, salt and water, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat and boil gently for 20 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. (About 1/2 cup of liquid should remain. If necessary, add a splash of water or stock; or, if too much liquid remains in the pan, remove the lid and quickly boil to reduce.)
 
Push the mixture through a food mill or ricer, or use a hand blender or an electric mixer to purée. Add the butter and mix or blend until smooth and creamy. Serve.
