Rutabaga Mash, with dried tomatoes, shallots and garlic

Let's eat more vegetables. I have said that time and time again. But honestly, I mean it each time! You will see more vegetable recipes right here, in the future.....

This is delicious, give it a try, we did!

Rutabaga Mash with dried tomatoes, shallots and garlic
adapted from:  Seasonal Ontario Food

4 c peeled and diced rutabaga

2 large shallots, peeled and sliced thin
1/4 c dried tomatoes in oil
1 clove garlic, minced 
olive oil and/or oil from the jarred dried tomatoes
salt and pepper to taste

Cover rutabaga with water by 1 inch, add salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, simmer until tender when pierced with a fork or the tip of a knife, about 20-25 minutes. Drain and keep warm.

While rutabaga is cooking, saute the shallots and garlic in oil. When soft and beginning to brown, add the tomatoes, cover turn off heat until the dried tomato pieces are tender. 

Using a potato masher, mash rutabaga, stir in the shallot mixture. Adjust seasoning and serve. 

Serves 4 - 6

I love rutabagas! My mom made them frequently growing up and now I make them for my boys often as well. They have a great flavor!

I didn't realize that rutabagas were in season - I should try this out if I see any.

You sound like me; I am always trying to work more veggies into our diet and on to my blog. The only problem is readers react as enthusiaticallly as my family. :) I love the way you have prepared your rutabagas!
