Oven Baked Rutabaga Fries

Rutabaga fries are my latest obsession.  When roasted in the oven, they crisp up and take on a wonderful caramelized flavour.

They are very easy to make as well.

  • 1 large rutabaga
  • 2-3 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • sea salt to taste

Preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F.

Peel the rutabaga and cut into fries – I find chunky ones work best.

Toss the fries in the melted coconut oil and then spread out in a single layer on a large, rimmed baking sheet.  Keeping them to a single layer means that they crisp up rather than being soggy.

Season well with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes, tossing every 10 minutes.

Check them frequently towards the end of the cooking time as they can go from perfectly browned and crisp to burned and charcoal very quickly.

Serve at once.
