Rutabaga Fries

Adina Elena Vladulescu
Have you ever tried rutabaga before? Rutabaga is a root vegetable that is a cross between a cabbage and a turnip. However, it actually tastes sweeter than turnips which is a good thing since turnips can be somewhat bitter. When I first made this recipe, I was amazed at how the shape and consistency of the rutabaga was just like that of a potato! Although these rutabaga fries can’t replace potato fries, they’re a wonderful substitute to add some variety to your diet.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Course Side Dish
Servings 4 people


  • 1 rutabaga cut as large fries
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • To taste chili flakes


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • Add all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and toss to coat.
  • Spread on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Flip the rutabaga fries halfway. The fries should be cooked through and crispy on the outside.
  • Enjoy!
