Orange Herb Oven-Baked Rutabaga Fries
Serves 2
Oven-baked fries are always good, but potatoes are not in my diet now, so I’m trying to cut back a bit. However, these oven fries made with rutabaga are a surprisingly delicious and healthy alternative. Rutabaga is a root vegetable. It has got less than a third of carbs and half the calories as well as more vitamins and minerals comparing to your regular potatoes. Just look at them - can you find the difference with regular fries?

Ingredients
  1. 1 large rutabaga (Swedish turnip)
  2. 1-2 Tbsp. olive oil
  3. 1 tsp dried thyme
  4. 1 tsp dried tarragon
  5. 1 tsp orange zest (from 1/2 orange)
  6. 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  7. salt and freshly ground pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. Peel the skin off the rutabaga and trim into fries about 4-inches long by about 1/2-inch wide.
  3. On a baking sheet, layer the rutabaga and sprinkle the olive oil, orange zest, herbs and seasonings. Toss the rutabaga fries with hands to disperse and coat evenly.
  4. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, tossing after 10 minutes or so, so that they bake even.
Notes
  1. Prior to baking, arrange rutabaga on the tray so they are not touching each other and have air space between them, air circulating allows them to crisp up better in the oven.
  2. Once baked, sprinkle a little Himalayan Pink salt on top. Serve with some sauce of your choice.
