Baked Turnip Casserole

Although turnips are not a vegetable in vogue, turnips, in my humble opinion are simply tops. 😉 You know when you look around the table and see people making faces it’s usually because they are disappointed that they aren’t consuming potatoes but unassuming turnips, although not everyone’s favourite are just as delicious in this savoury dish.

If you are watching your insulin levels and are wary of starchy vegetables, turnips make a great potato replacement with the added bonus of being a member of the famous cruciferous vegetable family…think Broccoli, Cauliflower, Kale.

As a result turnips are brimming with disease fighting phytochemicals, allowing the body to defend itself from cancer causing substances. Got a cold? nix the glass of sugary OJ and opt for some turnip casserole…with the juice content of turnips having twice as much vitamin c as its sweet counterpart this dish will have you feeling on top of the world.

If you’re wondering what turnips to use, generally older turnips have a more identifiable and stronger flavor than young turnips. Smaller and younger turnips are sweeter in taste so for a more savoury dish try larger turnips.

Nutritional Yeast, which I use often and sprinkle it into as many dishes as I can, is the perfect substitute in creating that cheesy twist to meals sans the dairy which many people can find troublesome and hard to digest. For people who are on a restricted anti-candida diet it’s ok to consume nutritional yeast as it will not affect candida.

As nutritional yeast is a type of deactivated yeast, it won’t ferment in your stomach and affect healthy gut flora that you are trying to cultivate. What it will do however, is provide you with an amazing spectrum of B-vitamins. Think a few of DAYS worth of thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, B6 and B12.

Baked Turnip casserole is an enjoyable way to incorporate turnips into your meals and turn you from a turnip hater into a turnip lover.
