Rutabaga Mash

This side dish is one of Norway’s staple dishes and is one of my favorite things to eat!! Rutabaga mash goes well with salty and smokey dishes. See video below on how to make it.

Rutabaga Mash

  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


1 small rutabaga (or half of a big one)
1 medium potato
2 carrots
0.5 dl cooking cream (non-dairy based milk can replace this)
1 tbs neutral vegetable oil (optional)

1. Peel and dice the vegetables into cubes. Put them in a pan with some water and a bouillon cube. Boil for 25 minutes.
2. Mash the ingredients with a fork/masher. Add salt, pepper and cooking cream for taste. Many like to also use margarin/oil, but I don’t. Feel free to experiment here.
3. Serve warm and enjoy!

This side dish goes well with vegan sausages, tempeh and potato dumplings.


A big thanks to my sister for teaching me how to make this dish!! 🙂
