Rutabaga Oven Fries


I used to worry about getting a rutabaga in my CSA box. I found this recipe for oven fries on my CSA website, Golden Earthworm Organic Farm. I cut the spices by half, used 2 small rutabaga and a sweet potato, and still found them to be slightly overpowering. Next time I would reduce the amount of spice mix or increase the amount of “fries.” Oven fries are a nice way to make a vegetable that the family isn’t welcoming with open arms more palatable! πŸ™‚

  • 1 large rutabaga cut into oven fry strips (I used 2 small rutabaga andΒ 2 sweet potatoes)
  • 1-2 T olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon each: cinnamon, ground cumin, paprika, and coarse salt
  1. Mix the olive oil with the spices.
  2. Toss in the rutabaga (& sweet potato, if using) pieces and coat them in the mixture. Spread out on a cookie sheet.
  3. Roast at 400F, turning once, until they’re nicely browned, about 20 to 25 minutes (convection roast) and up to 45-60 mins.

    I am off topic here but, how did you get the “one year ago today” on the bottom of your post? Do you have some code or are you linking it each time you post? I asked support and they said I’d need to link each time, there is no code for it , but I’m sure it exists… somewhere! Thanks in advance!

    • I am linking (with a short-link) it each time. I like to revisit my “one year ago” dishes πŸ™‚

        Thanks! As I present phenological events regarding plants, I wanted my blog to link to what was blooming last year at the same time. I think someone would have made a widget for that, but not yet! has one…. Lame. Thanks again for the info.

    I have never really done much with rutabaga, but they looks great!

  3. I think a rutabaga is what we call a swede?! Perhaps. Funny how much difference there are in our food words cross Atlantic! I love swede and often roast it is spices or mash it up with lots of butter as a potato alternative! Your spice mix sounds delicious

  4. I have never cooked with rutabaga before and have always wondered about the taste ! Fries seem like a good idea to try anything new!

  5. I’m a big fan of fries…I have to give these a shot! look so good πŸ™‚
