  • 1 large rutabaga, peeled and cubed

  • 3 cups chicken broth, or as needed

  • ¼ cup evaporated milk, or as needed

  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Place rutabaga in a medium pot and add enough chicken broth to cover. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover, and cook until tender, about 40 minutes.
