This is  one of the most popular veggie dishes among Ideal Northwest clients. Rutabagas are like turnips, but they have a sweeter, milder flavor when baked.

  • 1 large or 2 small rutabagas or turnips – enough to equal 2 cups chopped
  • 1-2 tsp olive or grapeseed oil – preferably spray
  • Sea-salt to taste
  • Seasonings such as garlic powder, SPIKE seasoning, etc (per your preference)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Peel rutabagas using a veggie peeler or paring knife. Slice the peeled rutabaga into fry-sized strips.  Place in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Spray lightly with oil and dust with liberal sea-salt, garlic powder, SPIKE or other seasoning.   Bake 30-35 minutes, flipping fries at about 15 minute mark.  Bake until the desired level of brownness/crispiness is achieved.  They are better when they’re crispy.
