Classic Corningware pattern means high quality baking dish

Classic Corningware pattern means high quality baking dish

With summer vegetables a not-so-distant memory (our jalapenos produce well into October), we’re looking for seasonal produce that ushers in fall. Now if only the thermometer would get the message.

Rutabaga and Parsnip Puree

  • 2 cups rutabaga, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 cup parsnip, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • roughly 1/2 cup milk
  • bread crumbs
  • blue cheese crumbles (optional)

Steam vegetables until fork tender, about 20 minutes. Puree in a blender with butter, adding just enough milk to puree. Can be made two hours ahead. To serve, place in a 1 1/2-2-quart casserole dish. Dust with bread crumbs and blue cheese. Rewarm in oven. Serve hot.

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.

  1. Two of my favorite (and two of the most underutilized) vegetables in the world, I think! I’m gonna try this, and if I love it as much as I think I will, I’m thinking of adding to my Thanksgiving line-up!

  2. When I read this it brought me back to my grandmother saying she was making rutabaga’s :). She loved them. Thanks for the memory and the recipe
