Garlic-Mashed Turnips and Potatoes

Serves 6.

  • 1 pound turnips, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 pound potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream or plain yogurt
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook the turnip, potato, and garlic for 10 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Drain and puree the vegetables and garlic through a food mill. (A food processor is not recommended, as it can turn potatoes very starchy.) Beat in the butter and sour cream and season with salt and pepper.

Organic farmers and experts in India organized to address the agriculture crisis facing the nation's 700 million farmers. Poor yields, degraded soils, and expensive chemical inputs arising from the cultivation of pesticide intensive crops, including genetically engineered cotton, have devastated India's rural economy. Crop failures and crushing debt led over 300 Indian farmers to commit suicide between May and July. To address this crisis, farmers from all over the country joined together August 2, 2006 to create the "Organic Vision 2020," a long term strategy to shift the country's farming focus back to ecological and traditional organic practices.
