rutabaga, peeled and cut into spears
fresh rosemary, minced
salt to taste
I love rutabage fries. I coat mine with smoked paprika and sprinkle with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. I don't like rosemary, so I don't use that, but garlic powder is tasty, too. I don't use fresh garlic, because I think these need to cook at a higher temp and for longer than 30 minutes, and the garlic would burn. I would suggest at least 425 for really nicely browned pieces. Mine never get super crispy, but I don't care...I love them!
These taste like turnips. How disappointing.
I followed this recipe exactly, and it is so tasty! Love the rosemary. Thank you!
These were really really tasty and smelled wonderful cooking. I found the cooking time to be off though. At 30 mins my fries were still undercooked and not browned at all. I think maybe a slightly hotter oven might work better. I had a hot spot in my oven so some of them got a little too dark, but those were yummy too.
I bought a rutabaga for the first time the other day and decided to try cooking one. Found this recipe and decided to try. I love the distinct flavor of the rutabaga and coating with the rosemary and garlic worked well. The only con was that they didn't get as crunchy as I'm use to with fries. I cooked 30 mins and then flipped and cooked another 10 mins. I may have had too many on the pan, because they were close together and maybe that's why they weren't as crunchy or maybe this is just how they are. They were a great snack though, will make again.
I admit, I was skeptical, but these were great. I used smoked paprika and cumin instead of rosemary, but honestly - - this would work with just about any spice.
Surprisingly good! However, it requires w-a-y more time in the oven!
These were great and my 7 year old liked them too.
