Turnip au Gratin

Rich and creamy Turnip au Gratin makes the best low carb potato substitute! Thinly sliced turnips are paired with a cheesy Alfredo-style sauce and baked to perfection.

INGREDIENTS NEEDED: • Turnips • Butter • Salt and pepper • Garlic  • Heavy whipping cream • Parmesan • Glucomannan or     xanthan gum • Cheddar cheese

Using a mandolin slicer, slice the turnips about ⅛ inch thick.

In a large saucepan, melt butter then add half of the turnip slices and toss to coat. Cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently.

Arrange the turnips in a ceramic baking dish. Repeat with the remaining butter and remaining turnip slices.

Sauté garlic in butter then stir in heavy cream and  simmer. Stir in Parmesan, salt and pepper. Whisk in glucomannan.

Pour cream mixture over the turnips and cover with foil. Bake 40 minutes.

Remove the foil, sprinkle with cheese, and bake another 10 minutes, until turnips are tender.

Turn on the broiler and broil 1 to 3 minutes to brown up the top, if desired.
