  • 1 small turnip, roughly 500g
  • 3 medium potatoes, roughly 500g such as Golden Wonder traditionally grown in Scotland)
  • 1 medium brown onion (optional)
  • small bunch of chives (optional)
  • butter
  • salt and pepper
  • nutmeg (optional)


  • STEP 1
    Prepare the turnip by removing the outer skin, then cut it into small and even cubes
  • STEP 2
    Peel the potatoes and chop them into cubes. Boil both vegetables in salted water in separate pots.
  • STEP 3
    Meanwhile peel and slice the onion as thin as possible, then fry them slowly in a pan with a little butter, or cooking oil, until well browned, sweet and crispy
  • STEP 4
    When the turnip and potato are soft, and they can be pierced easily with a sharp knife, drain them and leave them to steam for 5 minutes to help get rid of any excess water.
  • STEP 5
    Mash the turnip and potato together in a pot over a low heat, this helps to remove any excess water, and to keep it hot. Add a generous knob of butter, a grating of nutmeg and grinding of black pepper
  • STEP 6
    Stir half the onions through and save the rest for the top. Check for seasoning and serve sprinkled with the remaining onions and chives
