       Title: Root Vegetable Hash
  Categories: Vegetables, Roots
       Yield: 4 servings
  
       1 lb Rutabagas
     2/3 lb Carrots
     2/3 lb Red-skinned potatoes
       3 T  Butter
            Salt
            Freshly ground black pepper
       1 T  Minced parsley (opt)
  
   (From “More Vegetables, Please” by Janet Fletcher. Harlow and Ratner,
   Emeryville, California; $16.95, 1992)
   
   Peel the rutabagas, removing all traces of the thick skin. Cut them
   into 1/2 cubes. Peel the carrots and slice them about 1/2 thick.
   Scrub the potatoes well but do not peel them; cut them into pieces
   about the same size as the rutabagas.
   
   Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the
   rutabagas and cook 5 minutes, then add the remaining vegetables and
   cook until they are soft enough to mash but not mushy, about 15 more
   minutes. Drain thoroughly in a colander.
   
   Put the hot vegetables in a clean pot and shake the pot over moderate
   heat until the vegetables are completely dry. Remove the pot from the
   heat, add the butter in small pieces, and mash the vegetables gently
   with a potato masher; they should be mashed, not pureed. Season to
   taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to a warm serving bowl. Garnish
   with parsley if desired.
