Rutabagas

rutabagas

The pronunciation of this veggie makes it easy to remember it’s a root vegetable in the cabbage family. You might want to consider it the yellow cousin of the turnip, having a similar shape and taste. Prepare them like you would turnips.

How To Buy

Choose rutabagas that are heavy, well shaped (round or elongated) and smooth.

How to Prepare

Wash rutabagas; peel thinly. Cut into 1/2-inch cubes or 2-inch pieces.

How to Cook Conventionally

Boil: Covered 20 to 25 minutes or until tender.

Steam: Covered 20 to 25 minutes or until tender.

How to Microwave

Place in 2-quart microwavable casserole; add 1/4 cup water. Cover. Microwave 13 to 15 minutes, stirring twice, until tender. Let stand 5 minutes.
