Roasted Rutabaga

  • 1 rutabaga (also known as a Swede) about 6 inches in diameter
  • 2 – 3 Tbsp. olive oil or grapeseed oil
  • 1 Tbsp. dried Italian Herb mix
  • 2 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. sugar

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Peel rutabaga and cut into ½-inch cubes.
  3. Place rutabaga cubes in a large mixing bowl and drizzle with olive or grapeseed oil.
  4. Stir to coat rutabaga with oil.
  5. Sprinkle rutabaga with remaining ingredients and stir to distribute.
  6. Transfer rutabaga to a parchment-lined baking pan.
  7. Roast in center of the oven until edges brown and rutabaga is tender – 30 to 40 minutes – stirring about halfway through to minimize sticking.
