Rutabagas are mysterious vegetables that I had no idea what to do with. You have to boil the hell out of the rutabagas to get them tender. The smashed rutabaga recipe tastes a lot like mashed potatoes but it feels so healthy and clean!
Mashed Rutabaga Recipe ->
- 2 pounds peeled rutabagas, cut in large chunks
Peel the rutabagas, and cut them into chunks. Put them in a pan of cold salted water, cover, and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat and simmer until very tender, 30 to 40 minutes (seems to take forever). Drain the rutabagas, return them to the pan and heat for 2-3 minutes. Smash the chunks with a potato masher or fork, and add the salt and butter. They taste great!
