Recipe

This delicious and versatile vegetable purée can be served in place of mashed potatoes.

Yield: Makes 4–6 servings
Prep time: 10 Mins
Cooking time: 30 Mins

Ingredients

  • 2½ lb (1.1kg) rutabaga, pared and cut into chunks
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp heavy cream
  • Pinch of grated nutmeg
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Prepare ahead: The puree can be refrigerated up to 2 days and reheated.

1. Place the rutabaga in a large saucepan with lightly salted water to cover. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook about 30 minutes, or until tender. Drain well.

2. Return to the saucepan over a very low heat. Add the butter. Mash the rutabaga with a potato masher, then mix in the cream and nutmeg. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve hot.

Notes

Good with roast and grilled meats, and vegetarian dishes.
