Rutabaga is an often-neglected root vegetable that deserves a little more respect.
Most similar to a turnip, rutabaga has a mild but distinctive flavor. It makes a great autumn side dish. Try with roast chicken, pork or even Thanksgiving turkey.
Rutabaga is most often mashed with butter like potatoes. It gets a little extra flavor from bacon, onion and sage in this recipe from Linda Rogers Weiss, which originally appeared in the Journal in 2013.
