“I modified a recipe I found on and it turned out delicious! I'm posting it here so I don't forget how we made it. The almond milk I used was homemade almond milk with nothing in it other than almonds and water. I've noticed most of the store brands add sugar and chemicals. I suppose you could use real milk or cream too, but it was amazingly light and delicious with the almond. I prefer to keep these chunky rather than extra smooth due to the high water content in the turnips. I imaging this would taste great if you baked it with cheese too!”
