Mashed Potatoes and Turnips

Yield 6 servings (serving size: about 2/3 cup)
Turnips, Parmesan cheese, and sour cream enhance this twist on mashed potatoes. If peeling and chopping the potatoes in advance, keep them covered with cold water so they don't turn brown.

  • 1/2 onion, peeled
  • 1 pound peeled baking potato, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 pound peeled turnips, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) finely grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
