Pureed Rutabaga with a Cheesy Crust

  • 1 rutabaga
  • 2 Tbs. butter
  • pinch of salt
  • handful of fresh herbs (eg. thyme, parsley), chopped
  • 4 oz. mature cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds


Preheat the oven to 3500. Peel the rutabaga and chop into 2cm chunks. Boil in a large pan of water for 15-20 min. until soft.  Drain the rutabaga and mash with the butter. Add the herbs and season with salt. Transfer the rutabaga to an ovenproof dish and sprinkle with cheese. Sprinkle the seeds on top of the cheese. Bake for 20 min, until the cheese is bubbling.
