Hi All! Today at my internship we tested out a recipe for carrot and rutabaga mash! This was my first time preparing and/or tasting rutabaga but it was so easy to prepare and even more delicious!
To prepare a rutabaga, I suggest washing and drying the veggie first. Then chop off both ends (the sorta flat part, and then the tip) and then peel the skin off with a vegetable peeler. Cut the rutabaga into chunks of your desired size and then roast or boil– how simple!?
I can promise you this is one that belongs on your Thanksgiving Table next week– it will certainly be on mine! Here’s the recipe:
1 pound carrots, peeled and chopped
1 pound rutabaga, peeled and chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil
5 cups water
½ cup low sodium vegetable broth
1 teaspoon garlic powder
sprinkle of coarse salt, for taste
sprinkle of ground black pepper, for taste
In a large pot, add water and vegetable broth. Mix and then add carrots and rutabaga. Bring the mixture to a boil and pierce rutabaga and carrots until they are soft. Drain and add, garlic, salt, pepper, and oil. Smash together using a potato masher or food processor. Plate and serve!
