Baked Rutabaga “Fries”



When you are watching your carb intake, you start to miss things like french fries. These are a close substitution and are easy to make.

What you need;
2 rutabaga’s
1 tbls olive oil
1/2 pkt of ranch dressing mix

How to make;
Peel rutabaga’s (I left a little skin) and cut into a fry shape. I like thicker fries so I made mine more like steak fries. Put the rutabaga pieces in a bowl and toss with the ranch and oil until coated. Spread the fries on a baking sheet and bake at 425 for 10 min, flip and bake an additional 10-15 min. These don’t get as crispy as a french fry but they are a good fix when your having a craving! Mild in flavor, a root vegetable and part of the turnip family makes this a great substitute for a potato.

  1. I made these today and they were delicious (and very easy to make)! It took me a few minutes to find the rutabaga in the store. It’s not something I would normally try. But I’m glad I did! I paired it with a lettuce wrapped burger and it was just like having a burger and fries (but minus the carbs). 🙂
