Carrot And Turnip Purée

Carrot And Turnip Purée

Root vegetables are a fall staple in New England cuisine and over time can become ordinary. We've combined carrots with our creamy, tart Oikos Greek yogurt, sharp and spicy turnip and the perfect seasonings to make this side dish a main feature. No matter what region of the country you call home you'll love it.
