Creamed Turnips

These are quite tasty. I found it at fatfreevegan.com

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
salt
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)
