Original and delicious recipes from the now rarely grown rutabaga vegetable


How many times, passing by my garden, local residents, looking at the green cut-out, spreading leaves of plants spreading on the beds, asked in surprise:

- And what is it?

- Rutabaga … - I answered.

And in response, I almost always heard the same thing: "Is it tasty?" … And, shaking their head, they added: "Is it worth such nonsense to take a place in the garden?"

Such dialogues indicate that rutabaga is now a vegetable of the cabbage genus, thoroughly forgotten. Therefore, it is not without reason that almost no one cultivates this plant in the surrounding villages and in their summer cottages.

However, such inattention to the swede does not detract from its merits. Indeed, it contains 5-10% sugars, 0.6% proteins, 0.2% fat, 8.8% nitrogen-free extractives, vitamin C, which is not destroyed even during cooking.

Despite the obvious advantages of rutabaga, I have not found a single recipe related to this vegetable, although I have looked through many new culinary literature and publications in the press in recent years. But many nutritious and delicious dishes can be made from rutabagas using old recipes. I suggest several of them …

Rutabaga sauce

After peeling 2-3 large rutabagas, cut into small rectangular pieces, wash. Dissolve 1.5-2 tablespoons of cow oil or 3-4 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a saucepan, fry 1 tablespoon of flour in it, stir; dilute 2.5 cups of meat or mushroom broth, let it boil and cover with a lid. Cook until the swede is tender. Serve with chopped parsley.

Rutabaga cutlets

Peel 1 kg of swede, cut into pieces, cover with hot water and let stand for 10-15 minutes. Then drain the water, put the rutabagas in a saucepan, cover with boiling water and cook until soft. After that, pass the rutabaga through a meat grinder, salt, drive 4 eggs into it, put 2 tablespoons of melted butter, crushed white crackers (200 grams), nutmeg and beat it all well. From the resulting mass, mold cutlets, sprinkle with breadcrumbs and fry in oil.
