http://www.pbfingers.com/ often posts about eating rutabaga fries. I’ve tried numerous times to find rutabagas at Walmart, but I can’t. Maybe the store doesn’t have them? We don’t have a lot of grocery options around here.
But I’m dying to try them.
The recipe I want to make is simple:
• Olive Oil
• Salt, garlic powder, and paprika
Preheat oven to 425 F.
1. Peel rutabagas with a paring knife and slice in 1/4" rounds. If you like, you can do them in strips. They will cook a little faster, but you have to watch them carefully or they'll burn.
2. Rub with oil and a little salt and put them on a nonstick baking sheet.
3. Cook approximately 12 minutes, turning twice. Take out when golden brown and tender. Immediately sprinkle with garlic powder and paprika. I like to add kosher salt at the end as well.
Have you ever tried this ugly (but maybe tasty?) vegetable?
