Turnips are  a good alternative to potatoes and for those trying to steer away from mashed potatoes, mashed turnips are a great go to. They even taste good with gravy. Now when we say gravy, we're not talking about flour based gravy we mean cream based gravies.
Peel turnips and cut into chunks and boil just as you would do for potatoes for potato salad. Once turnips have become tender and mashable, drain thoroughly. Mash with a potato masher. If you notice some extra liquid strain through a metal mesh strainer again. Mix in butter, a little heavy cream  and/or  some shredded cheese and some herbs and spices. It's tasty, healthy and low carb!
