Creamed Turnips

These are quite tasty. I found it at

water to cover
1 pound of turnip (peeled and chopped)
3/4 cup plain, fat free soy milk (actually works better with less milk--I think I would try 1/3 or1/2 next time)
2 Bay leaves
2 whole cloves
2 black peppercorns
1 Tab. cornstarch
pepper (white pepper is best)
sprinkle of nutmeg

Cook turnips about 25 minutes or until soft.

Meanwhile place milk, bay leaves, cloves and peppercorns in glass container and microwave 3 minutes (stirring every so often) until it just starts to bubble.

Mash turnips and set aside.

Mix cornstarch with 2 tab. of water .Remove the seasonings from the milk and add the cornstarch mix to the milk . Place in the microwave for about 2 minutes, mixing every 15 seconds until it thickens. Watch carefully because it can boil over. Add S and P and nutmeg.

Add thickened milk to the turnips and puree it to creamy smoothness in the food processor. Taste and add more seasonings if desired. (mine needed to be a bit thicker--I think I woud put less milk)
