Notes: I cut up about three pounds of turnips and threw them in a pot of water. Once it boiled I covered and turned it to low to simmer for about 20-30 minutes. I mashed them with some coconut milk and garlic. Once it was creamy enough I stirred in some dried rosemary.

Notes: I sauteed mushrooms in coconut oil and added balsamic vinegar and maple syrup till they carmelized. The maple syrup ended up with a bit of a burnt taste. Honey would have worked better.

Notes: There are a few AIP dry rub recipes in this cookbook. This was my favorite and I have made it a couple more times. It’s an easy under 10-minute dinner that I serve with veggies and sometimes a baked sweet potato.
