Recipe of the Week

Mashed Potato, Rutabaga, And Parsnip Casserole With Caramelized Onions

Ingredients

7 cups low-sodium chicken broth
3 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 1/2 pounds rutabagas, peeled and cubed
1 1/4 pounds parsnips, peeled and cubed
8 cloves garlic
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon dried thyme
3/4 cup butter, softened
3 onions, thinly sliced
salt and ground black pepper to taste

Directions

Combine chicken broth, potatoes, rutabagas, parsnips, garlic, bay leaf, and thyme in a large pot. Bring to a boil.

Reduce heat, and cover partially. Simmer until vegetables are very tender, about 30 minutes.

Drain.

Transfer vegetables to large bowl. Add 1/2 cup butter or margarine . Use an electric mixer, beat mixture until mashed but still chunky.

Season with salt and pepper.

Transfer mashed vegetables to a buttered 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking dish.

Melt remaining 1/4 cup butter or margarine in a heavy large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add sliced onions. Saute until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low.

Saute until onions are tender and golden brown, about 15 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper.

Spread onions evenly over mashed vegetables.

Casserole can be prepared up to 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Bake, uncovered, for 25 minutes, or until heated through and top begins to crisp.

Amazake is a traditional sweet, low-alcoholic Japanese drink made from fermented rice. The basic recipe for amazake has been used for hundreds of years. Kōji is added to cooled whole grain rice causing enzymes to break down the carbohydrates into simpler unrefined sugars. As the mixture incubates, sweetness develops naturally. Amazake can be used as a dessert, snack, natural sweetening agent, baby food, salad dressing or smoothie. Amazake is believed to be very nutritious, with no additives, preservatives, added sugars or salts.
