Rutabaga Fries

Serves 4-5

2 large rutabagas, peeled

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

3 tablespoons spice mix

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.

  2. Cut rutabaga into French fry size pieces. 

  3. Place cut rutabagas into a zip lock bag or covered dish.  Add olive oil, salt pepper and spice mix. Toss together.

  4. Place rutabaga on a parchment lined oven proof-baking sheet. Try to get them on one level, without stacking them. This roasts them nicely.  Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the rutabaga is golden and a bit crisp.
