I love this cookbook! Okay, I love all cookbooks, but this one is great for healthy seasonal food. It’s also very authentic to natural food flavors.
My first recipe was rutabaga puree with orange and ginger. I almost always oven roast root vegetables and eat with some salt and pepper, so this switch was a pleasant change.
I cut the recipe in half, but the original is as follows:
- 4-5 rutabagas
- 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1/2 cup water
- sea salt
You pretty much put all ingredients together on the stovetop until cook through, then blend in a food processor and enjoy!
The flavor was great and the orange and ginger very subtle. The texture was okay for me, but I think I would have liked it even better if it was blended half and half with mashed potatoes. Another option would be to blend it with a little cream and butter.
