Mashed RutabagaSubmitted by: ~PENNY~
IntroductionGood alternative to mashed potatoes Good alternative to mashed potatoes
1 large rutabaga (about 1 lb.)
1 tbsp. unsalted butter
salt & pepper to taste
Peel and dice the rutabaga into 1" pieces. I would recommend using a large, sharp and sturdy knife for cutting the rutabaga as they can be quite hard to cut, especially if you are preparing a large rutabaga. Tip: Slice of one end and turn the rutabaga on that sliced side to make it stable while you cut it up.
Place rutabaga pieces in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook on medium heat for 15-20 minutes, or until soft when pierced with a knife. Drain the rutabaga and return to sauce pan. Add the butter, salt & pepper and mash, preferably using a stick (immersion) blender. Makes appprox. 4 1/2 cup servings.
