Mashed Rutabaga - Norway

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Mme M

Called 'swedes' in the UK, and 'rutabaga' in the US, these root vegetables are delicious steamed, mashed, or baked. It's a somewhat sweet vegetable, delicious accompanying roasted meats; the water used to boil it adds something nice to gravies. In the garden, they can be left in the ground a long time after the cold sets in.

This is a wonderful simple recipe! I skipped the butter and added just a splash of almond milk, along with some of the cooking water. Thanks for posting!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel and cut up one rutabaga into small pieces. Boil until tender in lightly salted water.
  2. Drain and mash adding butter, salt, pepper, and 1/4 cup milk or meat stock while the rutabagas are still hot.
  3. Adjust the recipe according to the size or quantity of rutabaga used. Some rutabagas are quite large!
