Rutabaga Fries

This recipe for 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 time couldn’t taste the difference at all!

What are Rutabaga Benefits? To start, rutabaga is basically a root vegetable that looks and tastes like a turnip but much less bitter. Like other brassica vegetables (that’s the family of vegetables rutabaga belongs to) they are naturally high in calcium and magnesium. That’s a great thing.

And what’s the best prepare to eat root vegetables? Roast them!

This is especially true for kids who are still acquiring new tastes. With the right herbs and crisp factor, you’ll have anyone fooled they’re actually french fries 😉
