Oven-Baked Low-Carb Rutabaga Fries

This recipe for Oven-Baked Low-Carb Rutabaga Fries is another one of those old recipes I made for my Instagram page that I’m just now uploading to the blog. When I made this 3 years ago, it was an instant hit! People were so amazed at how the shape and consistency of the cut rutabaga was just like that of a potato. Very deceiving and honestly my daughter at the couldn’t taste the difference at all! It’s basically a root vegetable that looks and tastes like a turnip but much less bitter. And what is my favorite thing to do with root vegetables?


Yeah, that needed to be in caps and in a line on it’s own! But honestly, that’s the best way to enjoy root vegetables, especially for kids who still acquiring new tastes. With the right herbs and crisp factor, you’ll have anyone fooled they’re actually french fires 😉
