Try This: Rutabaga Fries

IMG_6541 I don't think I've ever spelled Rutabaga correctly before. Thank God for spell check.

I first tried Rutabaga Fries a few weeks ago. I mean they aren't real french fries, but they're definitely a great low carb substitute.

I've also tried jicama fries. I like them both. I think I like Rutabaga fries better because they're a little cheaper than rutabagas. Just my preference!

Let's dive in! I've adapted my recipe from this recipe from

  1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees
  2. Peel and cut the Rutabagas like you would a potato
  3. Place cut rutabagas into a bowl and coat with olive oil
  4. Line baking sheets with foil
  5. Line up the rutabagas in a single layer and season fries with your choice of seasonings. I mixed sea salt and Mrs. Dash herb + garlic and then sprinkled it over the fries. 
  6. Bake for 30-40 minutes
  7. E N J O Y.

Let me know if you try them! - JJ
