Expert Tips

Add chopped garlic and parsley for garlic rutabaga fries.

Rutabagas are one of those root vegetables that always get passed up at the grocery store. Surprisingly, this versatile veggie can be prepared pretty much as you would a potato. You can mash it, add it to a stew, make a soup, fry it, or in this case, bake it. Baked rutabaga fries are easy and quick to prepare. The texture is similar to potatoes but with a slightly different taste that you have to try. They’ll go great with your favorite burger or on their own as a unique but very tasty snack. I bet you’ll enjoy them as much as I do!

Directions

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 425 °F.
