How to Use Them – Oven Baked Ruta-fries

We are always looking for new ways to prepare some of the more ‘traditional’ BCfresh products.  Special thanks to our friend Deb for introducing us to this great recipe. 

A little bit of oil helps create crispy fries and help make this a healthy addition to your family’s dinner plate!

Rutabagas are a storage root veggie that’s are closely related to turnips although they tend to be a little bit sweeter.  We may call them Rutabagas in Canada and the US but in most other English-speaking areas they’re known as “swedes”.

Rutabagas are an excellent source of vitamin C, a very good source of fiber, and a good source of potassium, manganese, and thiamin.
