Mashed rutabagas are a delicious side dish for Thanksgiving!
Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time35 mins
Servings: 10 -12
- 2 large rutabagas Swede, yellow turnip peeled and cut in chunks
- 1 tbs salt may be omitted
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 tsp fresh ground pepper
- 1 cup water
To avoid long cooking times and to insure the rutabaga is soft enough to mash, I use a pressure cooker to cook them so the directions are for that appliance
Place rutabaga chunks in the pressure cooker
Add salt if using and the water.
Seal pot and process for 15 minutes at 10 psi or "vegetable" setting on electronic models
Let the pressure release naturally, i.e. don't open the vent.
When pressure has dropped, open pot and drain the rutabagas
Add the butter and pepper and mash with a potato masher or electric mixer.
