recipe

Amy Pennington, creator of GoGo Green Garden and Urban Garden Share and author of "Urban Pantry," made-over her favorite childhood recipe. "Every Thanksgiving my mom made mashed rutabaga when we were kids, and no one ate it but my mom and me. I've tweaked the recipe a lot: I've made it vegan, and instead of mashing it together with a bunch of butter and bacon fat, as my mom did, I used a nut cream, which makes the rutabagas velvety in and of themselves. It's much healthier, but it still feels really filling and lush."

recipe

A cross between a turnip and a wild cabbage, rutabaga has a distinctly sharp taste. This puree calls for a touch of mascarpone, which mellows the root vegetable's bold flavor. If making the semifreddo, buy a small container of mascarpone and save the rest for dessert.
