"If there were only turnips and potatoes in the world, someone would complain that plants grow the wrong way."
-Georg Christoph Lichtenberg, Physicist
This is a super simple side dish that has it all. Sweet and a bit bitter, creamy, and a bit salty, this is a perfect replacement for mashed potatoes with all the comfort food goodness but more fiber and lots of calcium and Vitamin C.
If you are caught without any buttermilk you can make it easily by using 1 cup of skim milk and a tablespoon of any acid. Using white vinegar or lemon juice will work and these add more tartness. Using a tablespoon of cream of tartar will work as well and this will not be quite as acidic.
