Rutabagas anyone!

Sunday, November 17, 2013

Steam or boil diced rutabaga until soft and mash them is the way most people eat rutabagas. However, there are so many other ways to prepare them. Dice rutabaga and slowly saute with apples and onions until caramelized. You can roast them. You can make Rutabaga French Fries. They are a great veggie to add to soups.
Rutabaga has a good mineral content including calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and manganese. It is low in saturated fat and relatively high in sugars. It also provides some fiber and vitamins A and C.

Rutabagas support the following systems in your body Spleen-pancreas, Stomach, Liver, and the Digestive system.

Hasselback Rutabaga

Rutabaga Latkes

Rutabaga Oven Fries

Rutabaga Chipotle Soup

Carrots and Rutabagas with Lemon and Honey

    I also like rutabagas raw, just like carrot sticks. I eat them plain, no seasoning, just the great rutabaga taste.
