Mashed Rutabagas Recipe

Got Rutabagas? Mash 'Em!

Every year mashed rutabagas appear on our Thanksgiving table. When I was younger, I wouldn't touch them because I didn't know what they were. But now that I'm older and my palate's matured, I'm a huge fan. Also, the word "rutabaga" is just too fun to say! As it turns out, a rutabaga, known in Europe as a "swede," is a cross between a turnip and a wild cabbage. It's a sweet vegetable with definite hints of cabbage and turnip in its flavor profile. There are many ways to prepare this root, but mashing them is a tradition in my family. Read on for a simple recipe for mashed rutabagas.
