See?  Told ya so! 🙂  Anyway, with this in mind, I wanted to find a side that included these two delightful veggies.  I’ve shared my recipe for mashed rutabaga before…after thinking about it, I figured, why not add in some broccoli and top it with a bit of shredded goat cheese and plain yogurt – best. decision. ever.

This stuff is REALLY yummy, and you just saw how packed with nutrients it is!  Best part is that it is super easy to make!  Let’s get to it!

Ingredients

  • 1 rutabaga, washed, peeled, and chopped into cubes
  • 1 large bunch of broccoli, cut into florets
  • garlic granules
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt, plus more for topping
  • hard goat cheese for shredding
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

1.) Cover the rutabaga with water in a saucepan.  Place over high heat and boil until very tender, about 10-15 minutes.  While doing this, steam the broccoli in a steamer until tender.
