A Clever Trick with Mashed Potatoes and Turnips

I made a very cool discovery, the other day as I was preparing a Shepherd’s Pie. I prepared too much mash for the dish so I pondered what to do with the leftover mashed turnips and potatoes. I like to use turnips too as they are lower on the glycemic index than potatoes.

Before the Mash

Before the Mash

I had the brilliant idea to freeze the leftover  mash in ice-cube trays. I sprayed the trays with olive oil and plopped the mash into the trays. I leveled off the mixture and covered with aluminum foil. While rummaging in the freezer for some vegetables to use as a side dish, I remembered the frozen mash. I pulled the tray out and popped out a few of the frozen cubes to use with as a side for a meal and recovered the tray and returned it to the freezer. I placed the cubes on a plate and zapped it in the microwave, the mash did not lose any flavor or texture from freezing. I am patting myself on the back for this clever little tip. 🙂
