Rutabaga

Servings

Estimates based on 1/4 cup serving

Roasted (about 8 servings per pound)

Mashed (about 5 1/2 servings per pound)

Pie (remember to use the amount of mashed added to the pie, so with 3 pies we used 2 cups; so there are only 8 servings in 3 pies)

Tips

Like most root vegetables, rutabagas will last for a few weeks.

Have veggie soup/stew on the menu every week or two. Use up any fresh vegetables before going bad.  Add canned or frozen vegetables until you have enough for everyone.

Recipes

Root vegetable stew:  Peel and cut into chunks any variety of root vegetables (parsnips, rutabagas, turnips, carrots, and/or potatoes).  Add to water and bullion or stock.  Add cream of chicken soup.  Cook until vegetables are soft.  We add cut-up cooked chicken and serve over rice.
