Week #2 – Part II. CSA Food Box: Smashed Rutabaga Recipe

Rutabagas are mysterious vegetables that I had no idea what to do with.  You have to boil the hell out of the rutabagas to get them tender.  The smashed rutabaga recipe tastes a lot like mashed potatoes but it feels so healthy and clean!

Mashed Rutabaga Recipe   ->


  • 2 pounds peeled rutabagas, cut in large chunks
  • Salt
  • Butter

Peel the rutabagas, and cut them into chunks. Put them in a pan of cold salted water, cover, and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat and simmer until very tender, 30 to 40 minutes (seems to take forever). Drain the rutabagas, return them to the pan and heat for 2-3 minutes. Smash the chunks with a potato masher or fork, and add the salt and butter.  They taste great!
