Creamy Swede Bake

This swede bake is a really lovely alternative to mashed swede, although it does require a bit more effort.  I’m a big swede fan, even before the diet, but hubby who is not a lover of swede was very complimentary of this one and Oscar ate all of his too (with just the usual anti-vegetable complaints).  My recipe has just a few modifications from this one on Cook it Simply.

    Hi Evelyn,
    swede is a very pale orange vegetable, it’s also called rutabaga. It’s similar to a turnip.
