Creamed Carrot and Rutabaga Puree

Deb Crane


Bon a Petit Magazine had this recipe years and years ago. I had forgotten all about it until Bea posted a rutabaga recipe and it reminded me of this one. This version is creamy, and a great blend of flavors with the sweetness of the carrot complimenting the rutabaga flavor. Simple and something different to try for a side dish.
This recipe can easily be halved as it does make a large amount.
