Ingredients

  • 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)

Method

  1. Prepare the turnip by removing the outer skin, then cut it into small and even cubes

  2. Peel the potatoes and chop them into cubes. Boil both vegetables in salted water in separate pots.

  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

  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.

  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

  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
