This Roasted Garlic Turnip Dip is one of those recipes that you may not want to mention the ingredients unless they ask. Basically, it is just mashed roasted turnips and garlic. But, serve it with chips or veggie sticks and it becomes a flavorful dip that people will rave over. I also used it as a sandwich spread instead of mayo or mustard.
Turnips are low-calorie nutritional wonders, loaded with antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, and fiber. Roasting them and a few cloves of garlic mellows the flavor of both giving this dip a wonderful depth of flavor.
