Preheat oven to 350ºF. Wrap garlic cloves in aluminum foil. Roast for 30 minutes until golden and very tender. Reserve.

While garlic is roasting, steam or roast turnips until very tender. Once very tender, put hot, cooked turnips into a large mixing bowl. Insert the mashed potato attachment into the hand blender. Select High and mash turnips evenly, using a gentle up-and-down motion. Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl, including the flesh of the roasted garlic, and continue mashing until all of the ingredients are incorporated.

Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.

Drizzle with balsamic glaze and serve.
