We did the mash!

We did the monster mash!

Well, if you consider rutabaga, potatoes, and carrots to be monsters.  I know some people out there do… weirdos.

Veggie Mash Up

Ingredients:

  • 2 rutabaga, peeled & cubed
  • 2 medium potatoes, cubed
  • 2 carrots, sliced very thinly
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

What I did:

  • Put everything except the lemon juice in a pot and bring it to a boil for 15 minutes.  Judge done-ness by your carrots.  Mine were still a tad too hard and didn’t mash the way I wanted them to.
  • Drain & mash to your liking
  • Mix in lemon juice.  2 teaspoons is actually very subtle in this dish.  You could easily add a tablespoon and it won’t be overpowering.

Variations:

  • Any root veggie applies!  Add or subtract to suit your tastes.
  • Lightly saute some minced garlic and add it to the veggies just before mashing.
  • Sprinkle in some chopped chives, or another fresh herb you have around.
  • I put a pat of butter on mine, because that’s how I roll.  Then I ate almost all of it in one sitting with leftover turkey bacon.  YUM!
