Mashed rutabaga is a totally underrated vegetable. We absolutely love the slightly sweet, slightly bitter taste of this root vegetable. Rutabaga are as versatile as carrots or turnips, or any other root vegetable. You can roast them, boil them, mash them, or add them to pot roast, stews, and casseroles. This Chipotle Mashed Rutabaga recipe adds smokiness and spiciness with chipotle chiles in adobo, creaminess with butter and cream, and sugary sweetness with brown sugar, to balance the spice. Rutabagas make a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving feast, and provide that fall, root vegetable component that every Thanksgiving table needs.
