Swedish rotmos (V)

Rotmos meaning root mash is a mixture of mashed swedes (rutabagas) and potatoes, sometimes with carrots added.

1 medium to large swede (rutabaga)
3-4 medium potatoes
4-6 medium carrots (optional, mod salicylates, not for the strict elimination diet)
generous knob of butter (optional, but good for flavour)
3 tbsp milk (dairy, soy, rice or other)
salt to taste, preferably iodised

Thickly peel vegetables and cut into chunks. Steam or boil for 20 minutes or until soft. Drain most of the water, leaving a few tablespoons in the pan. Add the milk and butter (if using). Mash well. Add salt if desired. Serves 4 as a side dish. – thanks to Helen
