I`m not sure what "the greens" is? Is it green beans?
I eat both rutabaga, turnip and green beans, but in very small amount.

Yes, we do!

The boss tells me that she cooks rutabaga by boiling and then mashing with large dollops of butter.

Greens get stir fried in garlic butter. Turnips go in the soup.

I see the end products on my plate at least once or twice a week. By and large, they're quite edible!

Thanks Shanny!

John.in.France;
I do as your wife with the rutabaga, but I also add full fat cream after the butter is mashed together with the boiled rutabaga. Makes it taste even better!

We might do that too except that we can no longer find a good source of un-pasteurised cream. When we do track some down in the local market - having got there very early - it's reserved to special treats.

To further annoy Judy, the pasteurised version of cream supplied by our local supermarkets is now "improved" by the addition of soya.

Judy is allergic to soya

Two other things to do, with turnips:
a) hash brown them with onions and maybe green peppers (Okay that's o'brien, technically)

2) Roast slices of rutabaga, with olive oil and garlic, 375 oven and watch them and turn, till browned.

Turnips are quite useful and tasty. Mashed, as mentioned, but also diced in different soups. Diced, boiled, drained and then added seasoned butter makes a wonderful sidedish. They're also perfect to roast in the oven - yum!
Now, Im following y'all to the kitchen!

And what was the dish called I was forced to eat as a child when the smorgasbord for Christmas was laid out, Rutmus. A way to ruin a pot of mashed potatoes by adding in Rutabaga.
