Triple Mashed Vegetables Recipe

When Noel Heckler of Wolcott, New York had trouble getting her family to eat rutabaga, she knew she'd need a flavor-filled recipe to convince them to try it. "This is a nice variation on plain mashed potatoes," she says. "And it's so colorful!"
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 medium rutabaga, peeled and cubed (about 3 cups)
  • 6 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed (3-1/2 cups)
  • 6 medium carrots, peeled and sliced (3 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • 1. Place vegetables in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until very tender.
  • 2. Drain vegetables and transfer to a bowl. Mash vegetables and add the butter, salt and pepper; beat until smooth and fluffy. Yield: 6 servings.
