Ingredients

  • 500g (1Ib) carrots, peeled and diced into cubes
  • 500g (1Ib) rutabaga (swede), peeled and diced into cubes
  • ¼ cup 35-40% cream (whipping, heavy cream)
  • 2-4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Finely chopped parsley, to garnish

Instructions

  1. Place the diced rutabaga and carrots in a large saucepan and cover with ½-inch water. Bring to a rapid boil. Remove the scum floating on top then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, 20-30 minutes or until the vegetables are very soft. Drain the water and mash the vegetables using a ricer or a potato masher. A ricer is more appropriate.
  2. Heat the cream until piping hot and add the butter and Parmesan to the hot cream. Stir to combine then pour over the mash. Season with salt and pepper and mix until smooth.
  3. Serve sprinkled with fresh parsley and some more grated Parmesan, if you like.
