Anybody have some inspiring Rutabaga recipes?

I'm looking for some new things to do with rutabaga besides mashing it or putting in a stew.

Isn't that swede? They tend to be good in pureed vegetable soups

A friend makes it stuffed with herbs, I've seen other vegs stuffed with this veg, my favorite is the simple mashed side of kalrabi with pinnekjott, a rich dried lamb's ribs and sausage meal, traditional in Norway, it's good with rich meats, lighter than mashed potatoes.  I call it kalrabi.

Yes, White Rabbit, rutabagas are also known as swedes or swede turnip.  I'm thinking of trying to do some sort of a ravioli filling.

MsPablo, kohlrabi is a different vegetable from rutabaga.  Are you using the term kohlrabi for the rutabaga?

Re: Anybody have some inspiring Rutabaga recipes?

we serve sweed as a vegetable with our sunday roast, traditionally we serve it mashed with butter & black pepper, we ofter use it in stews & casseroles, its good in vegeterian curry as it retains some bite and therefore provides a little texture unlike some veg that can become soggy if cook for a long time.

good luck ! thumbsup

Rutabaga Puff
Ingredients:
4 cups cooked, mashed rutabaga, about 1 large (2 1/2 to 3 pounds) rutabaga
4 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon fresh chopped dill weed or 1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
1 teaspoon salt
dash pepper
dash paprika
4 eggs, separated
Preparation:
Combine mashed rutabaga, butter, dill, salt, pepper, and paprika. Blend in egg yolks. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into the rutabaga mixture. Lightly pile into a greased 1 1/2-quart casserole. Bake in a preheated 375 oven for 30 to 40 minutes, until set and top is golden brown. Spoon into a serving dish and serve

Rutabaga Apple Casserole
Ingredients:
3 cups peeled sliced rutabaga
2 med. apples, sliced
1/2 c. brown sugar, packed
3 tbsp. butter
Salt
Preparation:
Cook rutabaga slices in boiling salted water until just tender; drain. Place half of slices (rutabaga) and half of apple slices in greased 1 quart casserole. Sprinkle with half of brown sugar and dot with half of butter. Sprinkle with salt. Repeat layers. Bake, covered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

RUTABAGAS IN THE ROUGH

4 large rutabagas
1/4 t. salt
Water
1 T. extra-virgin olive oil
Dash of nutmeg
Salt and pepper to taste

Peel rutabagas with a vegetable peeler, and cut into chunks. Put them into a 4-quart (4 liter) saucepan, add the salt and about 2" (5 cm) of water to cover. Cover saucepan, and bring to a boil over high heat.

Turn heat down to medium and cook about 12 - 15 minutes, or until fork tender. Drain, reserving cooking liquid. Using a potato masher, coarsely mash rutabagas in the saucepan, adding cooking liquid as needed for moisture.

Add olive oil and nutmeg. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to a serving bowl, sprinkle with a dash of nutmeg, and garnish with a sprig of fresh sage or herb of your choice.

Rutabaga... ?!

God, I remember horrors stories from mum eating rutabaga at every single meal when she was younger... She was at boarding school run by the Sisters...

I dont recall her ever cooking that at home when I was a kid...

But I'll try that next time I'm at the supermarket....
