Mashed Rutabaga with Sour Cream and Dill

Rutabagas can be cooked just like potatoes, either roasted or mashed. This dish below can be a fun substitute for traditional mashed potatoes.

Mashed Rutabaga with Sour Cream and Dill


  • 2 to 3 pounds of rutabagas, peeled and chopped into 1 inch chunks
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup sour cream (to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped dill or chives


  1. Cover the chopped rutabaga with one inch of cold water in a large pot. Add salt and boil until tender, about 30-40 minutes. Drain and return to pot.
  2. Reduce heat to low and let the rutabaga steam for a minute or two. Mash with a potato masher.
  3. Add butter, sour cream, salt, and pepper.
  4. Just before you serve, add chives or dill.
