Thanks to Benedictine University Dietetic Intern Christine Anderson for sharing this recipe. Christine says: “These rutabaga fries are a great alternative to traditional French fries, one of the foods children love the most. Kids will love the taste, and parents will love the fact that they are healthy!”
1 rutabaga, peeled and cut into spears
1 teaspoon olive oil
4 sprigs fresh rosemary, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 pinch salt to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine rutabaga spears with oil, minced rosemary, garlic and salt. Toss until evenly coated. Lay rutabaga spears onto a baking sheet, leaving space between for even crisping. Bake until rutabaga fries are cooked through and crisped on the outside, about 30 minutes.
