They may not be much to look at, but if you like potatoes, you are going to love rutabaga. Also known as swede or neeps, rutabaga is a cross between turnips and wild cabbage, making them part of the cruciferous veggie family--think broccoli or brussels. While they contain the nutritional benefits of cruciferous vegetables like vitamin C, fiber, potassium, and magnesium, they taste and act like their root vegetable ancestors, making them an unbeatable, healthy winter substitute for all those comforting potato dishes. Try them cubed, boiled, and mashed with butter; roast with olive oil and herbs; slice thinly and layer with cheese and a decadent bechamel for a gratin.
