Root mash with a twang of sweet potatoes

A picture named M2

The rutabaga is a Swedish root vegetable called kålrot in Swedish, the old Swedish name for this tasty rooty is rotabagge which means bag of roots, so the exotic name rutabaga is actually derived from Swedish, in England the rutabaga is actually called swede. One of my favorite dishes is rotmos or root mash, it is made from rutabaga, potatoes and carrots. I experimented by replacing the carrots and potatoes with sweet potatoes and the result was deliciously creamy and silky smooth. This dish is not only colorful and tasty it is good for you, rutabagas are high in c-vitamins  combined with the sweet potatoes that are high in a-vitamins sprinkle a lot of parsley on top of your mash and your dish might even lower your blood pressure. Here is how to do it
Sweet root mash

1 medium rutabaga - peeled and cubed
2 medium orange, sweet potatoes - peeled and cubed
1 cube of vegetable bouillon
3 tbl spoons of butter
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
plenty of curley parsley for garnishing

Heat water to a boil and throw in the bouillon cubes, let them dissolve, add cubed rutabaga and boil for 15 minutes, use a fork to make sure the rutabaga is medium soft, add cubes of sweet potatoes and boil for another 5 minutes. Drain the rooties and add butter, salt and pepper, mash with a fork, before serving clip plenty of parsley on top. This side dish is perfect with spicy sausages, bacon and all types of meats.
