I used this recipe instead of mashed potatoes at a meal. It was great. And the leftovers freeze well. The only problem I had was it took much longer then 20 minutes to cook the rutabagas. I may not have cut it up small enough before cooking. Read More

This was my first time trying out rutabaga. I followed the recipe above except with clarified butter. It was ok but I don't think it had anything to do with recipe rather that I just don't love rutabaga. Bottom line if you like rutabaga you will probably like this. Also a good paleo/whole30 side. I did eat it all with hubby's help but the kiddos did not like it. Read More
