LOW CARB Oven-Baked Rutabaga "Fries"


  • Rutabagas
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt, garlic powder, and paprika


Preheat oven to 425 F. 1) Peel rutabagas with a paring knife and slice in 1/4" rounds. If you like, you can do them in strips - they will cook a little faster, but you have to watch them carefully or they'll burn.

2) Smear with oil and a little salt and put them on a nonstick baking sheet.

3) Cook about 12 minutes, turning twice. Take out when golden brown and tender. Immediately sprinkle with garlic powder and paprika. I like to add kosher salt at the end as well.

Nutritional Information:1 cup raw sliced rutabaga has about 7 grams effective carbohydrateplus 3.5 grams of fiber and 50 calories (plus oil).

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
