photo by Julie Bs Hive
- Ready In:
- Place the rutabaga in a 6 quart pot with ample water and a pinch of salt. Boil for 15 minutes.
- Add the turnips and potatoes and boil 15 minutes more, until all the vegetables are tender.
- Drain well.
- 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.
I prepared 1/2 recipe, with no substition of any ingredients. I coarsely mashed the ingredients. The yellow pieces of rutabags were pretty mixed with the turnips and potatoes. This was good, but seemed to be missing something. The flavor was a bit bland, maybe the rutabaga or turnips were not flavorful themselves. I am glad I tried this and would try again if I could put my finger on why it tasted bland to me. Thanks Engrossed!
