Simple and natural, this paleo porridge is the perfect breakfast comfort food that won't wreak havoc on your digestion. 


  • 1 medium turnip, peeled and diced (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1-2 cups natural chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons coconut cream or coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup celery, diced
  • 1/4 cup onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh or dried green apple, diced
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries, juice sweetened (try them at
  • sea salt to taste (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried sage, crumbled


  1. Place diced turnips in a medium sauce pan, and pour chicken broth in until just covered (about 1-2 cups).
  2. Over medium-high heat bring turnips and chicken broth to a boil.
  3. Meanwhile, in a separate saute pan, sautee coconut oil, celery, onion, apple and cranberries over medium-high heat until onions are translucent and all ingredients are fork-tender. Add sea salt and dried sage if preferred (or other herbal seasoning), stir and remove from heat.  Set aside.
  4. When turnips are fork-tender, turn off heat and carefully drain off excess liquid.  
  5. Add coconut cream to cooked turnips and mash with a fork or potato masher.  You can also puree in a blender for a smoother porridge.  
  6. Serve hot in bowls with vegetable/fruit topping.  Enjoy!
