Rutabaga Purée

Rutabaga Puree

This is a super easy side dish that is a nice change from mashed potatoes. Rutabagas might not be the prettiest root veggies, but they taste good and are low in calories (about 51 calories per cup). They are also rich in potassium and vitamin c.

Rutabaga Purée

2 pounds rutabagas, peeled and diced
2 tablespoons butter
salt and pepper, to taste

Boil the diced rutabagas in in a large pot of salted water until tender, about 30 minutes. Drain in a colander and return the rutabagas to the pan. Add the butter. Using an immersion blender, purée the rutabagas until completely smooth. If you do not have an immersion blender, you can use a food processor. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
