I signed up to get a box of local, organic produce delivered to my house from Share Organics. My first box came with something I’ve never bought or cooked — rutabaga! I had no idea what to make but I found this recipe online and it was great. It took just a few minutes to prep, I put it on the stove when I put my turkey leg and beets in the oven to roast, and it was ready with the gravy! I’m not sure why it’s called a casserole, it’s more of a purree or mash. It’s sweet and yummy and way more exciting than the rutabaga looked when I first laid eyes on it…
