Rutabaga fries are a delicious side dish that is buttery, sweet and savory. They are nutritious too! Rutabagas are an excellent source of potassium, calcium, magnesium, and vitamins E and C.


  • 1 large rutabaga
  • 1/4 cup oil (olive oil works well)
  • 1 tsp rosemary or other herb/spice mix
  • Salt
  • Pepper
Main Ingredient(s): Rutabagas


  • Heat oven to 425 °.
  • Clean and cut the rutabaga in half and slice into long pieces (like French fries)
  • Put rutabaga pieces in mixing bowl. Add oil, herbs and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Mix with your hands or a spoon until all pieces are covered.
  • Spread out onto a baking sheet.
  • Roast in oven until edges brown and rutabaga is tender – about 45 minutes – stirring half-way through so both sides brown.
