Rutabaga Mash Tips

  • Using nutmeg makes this so warming and fragrant. It brings such a lot of flavor to the dish.
  • You could also add other spices or seasonings such as black pepper, cloves, thyme or cilantro. Consider what you are serving it with and what flavors complement which dishes.
  • Please do a quick pressure release.
  • If not vegan, feel free to add in some butter to make the mash a little creamier.

Chef’s tip: the cooking time listed does not include time for the Instant Pot to come up to pressure or for the pressure to release.

What is Rutabaga?

Rutabaga is a large and rotund root vegetable with a sweet earthy flavor. Originating as a cross between a cabbage and a turnip, it is an inexpensive and readily available vegetable.

The root bulb can be prepared in a wide variety of ways, and the tops can even be eaten as a leaf vegetable. Known as swede in most of the UK and as neeps in Scotland, it is quite a popular vegetable to serve in Scotland on Burns Night.

Instant Pot Swede Mash Cooking Time

Cooking swede in the Instant Pot for approximately 5 mins is best, but do let it cook for 8 mins if the cubes are cut a little larger.
