Using Yukon Gold potatoes and yellow turnips help trick the eye into thinking there is much more butter in this recipe.


  1. Put rutabaga, potatoes, and garlic in a large pot with water to cover. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender.. Drain.
  2. Return to pot and add butter, yogurt, milk, salt and pepper and mash until smooth.
  3. Stir in chives or scallions, if desired, and spoon into a serving bowl.
