    Default It was very tasty...

    Dinner last night, I had one rutabaga, one sweet potato, not enough to
    make a full meal. What to do ? I diced one cup of rutabaga, diced one
    cup of sweet potato, diced one cup of red skinned potatoes. I steamed
    until tender, then mashed. Put the mash into shallow casserole and
    sprinkled shredded cheese on top. Put into 350 oven until cheese got
    golden brown. Very good, tasty, yummy...

    Sounds good and creative! Carrot would go with that too.
    Mom used to make mashed carrots and turnips together with a little salt,
    pepper and butter...

    I hated it as a child, (did not like the flavor of the turnips) but I've
    been tossing around the idea of making some just for old times sake for
    dad as he really liked that combo, and trying it again myself as my
    tastes really have changed as an adult.

    Nothing wrong with making root veggies a primary meal ingredient. If you
    are cooking for yourself, sounds like you made a good combo. I would
    only consider what added ingredients, and cooking method for the
    finished results for the finished product.

    Being creative is a good thing.

    Wow, that sounds really good.

    Try roughly mashed carrot and parsnip. YUM.

    Never tried parsnip.
    What does it taste like?

    Because of this newsgroup, I tried one for taste. I cubed and boiled it.
    It tasted like a weakly flavored carrot. Sort of. I'd certainly eat them
    if they were served to me. I wasn't dazzled enough to dig up recipes and
    buy a peck.

    Try them roasted. Much, much, much, MUCH better than boiled.. It
    becomes a totally different vegetable.

    Agreed. Roasting or sauteing in a little butter causes the
    sugars in the parsnips to caramelize and they get quite sweet.
    You don't get that effect with boiling.

    A parsnip is an absolute must in winter soup, the hearty kind with
    beans to be exact. Don't use a lot, pick the smallest parsnip you can
    find to flavor an 8 quart pot (I grate it, so it disintegrates in the
    end).

    Oh, yes... you reminded me! They are wonderful when you do a medley
    of roasted winter vegetables.

    Or slice and saute until browned. Parsnips aren't intrinsically dazzling
    though
