This Au Gratin Recipe Is a Tasty Alternative for People with Diabetes!

Learn how to replace the potatoes in your au gratin dish with turnips and reduce the carbohydrates! Cheryl, from Everyday Dishes, gives step-by-step instructions to make this lower-carb alternative to the classic recipe. She’s a big fan of lowering carbohydrates, but isn’t shy about using high-fat ingredients like heavy cream. So, if your doctor recommended diet plan includes reducing calorie intake, this might not be the recipe for you.

Turnips, a root vegetables related to the cabbage family, pack a mere 9 carbohydrates compared to their russet potato counterparts, which carry a whopping 39 grams of carbohydrates! This (surprisingly) tasty side dish is a delicious alternative that’s easy to make, which puts it high on my list of favorites.
