Creamy with a hint of garlic, this Low FODMAP Mashed Turnips with Bacon recipe is a fun, side dish alternative to typical mashed potatoes.


  • 4 cups turnips, peeled and diced
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 2 Tbsp. butter (or ghee)
  • 2 Tbsp. garlic-infused olive oil
  • 4 Tbsp. chives, chopped
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Place diced turnips in a large pot and cover completely with water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until turnips are fork-tender.
  2. While turnips are cooking, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add bacon and cook until crispy. Place bacon on paper towels to cool and soak up excess bacon grease. Once cool, crumble and set aside.
  3. Drain cooked turnips. Return to pot and add butter and olive oil. Mash until desired consistency is achieved. Stir in bacon bits and chives. Season with salt and serve.
