  • 1 rutabaga cut into spears
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Pre-heat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine rutabaga spears with oil and spices, and toss until evenly coated.
  • Lay rutabaga spears onto a baking sheet, leaving space between
  • Bake for 30 minutes, flipping the rutabaga spears halfway through; they should be cooked through and crisped on the outside


Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last about 3-4 days in the fridge. To reheat, I would recommend popping them in the toaster oven or regular oven so they can crisp up again.
You can freeze them for up to 6 months. I would recommend blanching them before freezing them, roasting them or boiling them first though. 
Make Ahead Tips: You can wash, peel and cut the rutabaga vegetable up to 2 days in advance. Store it in the fridge in some water until you're ready to use. Then just drain and dab with a paper towel until dry.
