    Engrossed's Note:

    This is from "The Frugal Gourmet Celebrates Christmas". I made the entire "Swedish Winter Feast" for a past Christmas and it was wonderful! I'll post the other recipes next. The whole meal is: Swedish Corned Pork Roast, Swedish Sauerkraut, Swedish Green Split Peas with Bacon, Mashed Rutabaga, Turnip, and Potato & Sweet and Hot Mustard, served with Rye Bread. I expected not to like anything and ended up LOVING everything!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 3/4 lbs rutabagas, peeled and quartered
    • 1 1/2 lbs turnips, peeled and quartered
    • 1 lb russet potato, peeled and quartered
    • 4 tablespoons butter, melted (1/2 a cube)
    • 1/2 cup whipping cream
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste


    1. 1
      Place the rutabaga in a 6 quart pot with ample water and a pinch of salt. Boil for 15 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add the turnips and potatoes and boil 15 minutes more, until all the vegetables are tender.
    3. 3
      Drain well.
    4. 4
      Mash the vegetables with the remaining ingredients. (I do it right in the pot.) You can also use an immersion blender to puree them.

      This is quite good. I had more turnip than rutabaga, so I ended up reversing those proportions. I also used soy cream rather than whipping cream. I think those changes worked out well. This dish is a really nice alternative to mashed potatoes. It's got a bit of a different texture and is waterier, but has a nice, mild bite. We had it with cranberry sauce and think it would go well with gravy too.

      It's yummy. I made half the recipe. I used whole milk instead of whipping cream. Thanks Engrossed. Made for I recommend tag.

      One of my family's favorite root vegetables dishes. I make this often, just never knew there was a name for it. Made for ZWT4
