Here’s some rutabaga facts and a healthy Roasted Rutabaga Recipe that makes a great alternative to potato. Rutabaga is a low-carb root vegetable you can use just like a potato, but with less than half the calories and carbs of potato. In appearance rutabaga is like a larger version of a turnip, but it tastes a bit sweeter. It’s related to cabbage, and has a very mild cabbage taste. Rutabaga is great baked in the oven, cooked in soups, and I love it shredded and cooked into breakfast hash browns. Like most produce, when buying rutabaga choose one that’s firm and seems heavy for it’s size. Give a rutabaga recipe a try and let me know what you think.
