Rutabaga Mash Tips

  • Using nutmeg makes this so warming and fragrant. It brings such a lot of flavour 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 flavours 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.
