Maple Miso Mashed Rutabaga

Most people think of mashed potatoes or mashed sweet potato for a Holiday side dish, but did you know rutabagas make a delicious side as well?  In this recipe I cook them until tender and mash them with a bit of sweet maple syrup and miso for a delicious combination that is perfect with any protein!
