And, I am all about Simplifying my life.
So, I try and meals that ALL of us can eat. Preferably something that the baby can pick up with her fingers.
Enter Rutabaga Mash.
I had never cooked with Rutabaga before. But, I picked some up at Baltimore's lovely year-round Farmer's Market.
To make this side-dish that can work as a dessert, I started by peeling and boiling the Rutabagas.
I drained the pot, added some Lemon Water Kefir (or your juice of choice).
I threw in the peeled and cut up Apples, Pears and Ginger and simmered for a 10-15 minutes. Maple Syrup and Cardamom joined everything else.
I drained the liquid until there was only about 1/2 cup left and then mashed everything up. I left some nice smallish pieces for the baby to be able to grab onto.
It's a lovely way to use up any Rutabagas you may still be getting from your CSA.
This will definitely be joining our "Meal Rotation" next Winter.
