Mashed Rutabaga (Swedish Turnip)

Rutabagas are a great alternative to potatoes.



Mashed Rutabaga

Mashed rutabaga is almost as common as mashed potatoes in Sweden. At least it used to be when I grew up.

Rutabagas are a great alternative to potatoes in many ways, as they contain much less carbohydrates than potatoes, and more nutrition as well.

Wash rutabagas and peel off the skin with a potato peeler. Cut rutabagas into medium sized squares and boil on the stove until soft enough to mash. Use a toothpick to test when rutabagas are done.

Mash the rutabagas with a bit of the water from boiling. Add some salt, pepper, butter or coconut oil, and maybe a dash of cream (optional).

Serve as you would serve mashed potatoes.
