A new-to-me veggie to try!

So I was talking about healthy foods with one of my clients the other day and she mentioned that her new favorite thing to roast was rutabagas...what? I'd never had a rutabaga before and now I'm a bit obessed. Thanks EM for the introduction to this root veggie that is loaded with vitamin C, zinc and fiber. 

This is a super easy way to prepare it (after roasting it tastes like something between a radish and sweet potato...sooo good).

What you need: 

  • Rutabagas (find in your local grocery store)
  • Sea Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cooking spray
What you do

  • Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees
  • Cut tops off of rutabagas and chop them into cubes
  • Spreed out on cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray
  • Sprinkle salt and pepper on the veggies
  • Roast for 40 minutes, stiring the cubes up every 10 minutes or so
You can have a whole cup of roasted rutabaga for 53 calories, 0.2 grams fat, 12 grams of carbs, 3.2 grams fiber and 1.5 grams protein
