My sister texted me a photo recently of something she got in her CSA box. The veg was round in shades of purple and white. I identified it immediately as a rutabaga. Clueless on what to do with it, she asked for suggestions. My advice? Treat it like a potato. Mashed rutabaga is fabulous with some melted butter and herbs. Scalloped rutabaga would be equally fab. Rutabaga fries could totally be a WIN. I just so happened to have purchased a rutabaga myself. Instead of being mashed, scalloped or fried, my rutabaga was destined for soup.
