if you do not want to use milk in this recipe, substitute 1/4 cup of the cooking water from the rutabaga and potato pot.
few pinches salt
1 pound rutabaga peeled, cut into 1/2 inch chunks
1/2 pound potatoes, any kind, peeled, cut into 1/2 inch chunks
1 medium carrot, chopped
1/4 cup milk (or 1/4 cup cooking water from rutabaga and potato pot)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
freshly ground black pepper
1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add a few pinches of salt and then drop in the rutabaga; cook for 10 minutes. Add the potato and carrot; cook until everything is tender, 15 to 20 more minutes. Drain.
2. Heat the milk in a small saucepan, but do not boil.
3. Mash the rutabaga and potato with the butter until smooth, adding a little of the warm milk at a time until the mixture reaches the consistency you like. Stir in the salt, nutmeg, and pepper to taste. Serve hot.
