I learned this one from Picks Over Peas:
1 rutabaga and/or some turnips
part of an onion (optional)
1/2-1 cup nut or soy milk OR
1/4 - 1/3 cup raw cashews and 1/2-1 cup water
(the amount depends on the size of your rutabaga--start small and add more as needed)
1-2 dates or dried apricots (optional)
Peel the rutabaga/turnips/parsnips, cut up and steam along with onion for 20 minutes. You can microwave the milk for 30 seconds to warm it up. Blend the rutabaga with the nut milk (or nuts and water) and dates. It's delicious! Now, I used the dates because I was fearful of rutabaga. Picks Over Peas didn't use dates. I thought I didn't like rutabaga but I really like this, so don't let your fear of rutabaga stop you--you can ease into it with the dates like I did. I've tried this with rutabaga, turnips, and rutabaga/turnips/parsnips. It's all good! Today I had this with steamed carrots, peas and corn. Super easy meal that tastes great. And it's healthier than mashed potatoes! We still get local all these root vegetables from our co-op. Note in the picture, my pureed rutabaga is a little brownish in color--that's from the color of my nut milk made from a bunch of different nuts and seeds. If I'd used cashews or almonds or soymilk, it would be whiter.
