Two Guiding Stars icon Two Guiding Stars indicate better nutritional value.

Potatoes aren’t the only roots worth mashing. Turnips and parsnips add a complexity to the flavor that you’ll love. Using Greek yogurt in place of the more traditional butter and sour cream boosts the flavor and reduces the fat content of traditional mashed potatoes.


  • 1 medium sized turnip, peeled and cubed
  • 2 large parsnips, peeled and cubed
  • 4 medium red potatoes, cubed
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 6 ounces plain, non-fat Greek yogurt


  1. Preheat oven to 400 Degrees Fahrenheit. Spread vegetables and garlic on a baking sheet and roast until tender.
  2. Transfer to bowl and mash with yogurt, salt, pepper and milk. Add extra milk if needed to achieve desired texture.
