Rutabaga French Fries- Recipe

Why health conscious restaurants aren’t serving rutabaga french fries is beyond me. Since discovering them a couple of months ago my husband and I eat them twice a week. Nutritionally they have some obvious benefits compared to white and sweet potatoes.  Also, they are delicious and easy to make. They pair well with just about anything, we eat them with burgers, steak, chicken and fish. Most recently we discovered Parkdale Sausage Co. at our local farmers market and had our ‘ruta-fries’ with their ‘bangers’. Erica Schott Rutabaga French Fries

Morris dips them in ketchup, I like them in a mixture of mayonnaise and hot sauce, my husband eats them plain.  If you’re looking for a summer salad to add to the mix try Watermelon Cucumber Feta Salad or Beet SaladErica Schott Rutabaga French Fries
