Rutabaga Mash

Makes about 6 servings

Chop rutabagas, potatoes and squash into 1" cubes.

In a medium saucepot, bring water to a boil. Add rutabagas and garlic, return to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Add potatoes, return to a boil. Again, reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Add cauliflower and cook for an additional 5 - 6 minutes. All veggies should be tender. (Check just like making mashed potatoes with the tip of a knife. If it slides in easily, it's ready.) Drain.

Microwave the squash for 5 minutes. Saute the onion with a bit of salt and pepper in a tablespoon of oil until browned.

Combine cooked rutabaga, garlic, potato and cauliflower mixture with squash and fried onions in a large bowl. Mash together well. Add in green onions and bacon (if using), sour cream, salt and pepper to taste. Serve.


  1. Like mashed potatoes, this is just as good the next day.
