Rosemary Rutabaga Fries


ru·ta·ba·ga/ˈro͞otəˌbāgə/

Noun: what the hell is it?!

yep, this is probably what you are thinking. i was too until i enjoyed this delicious veggie down south many years ago...and i've brought it back to the kitchen. sexy little veggie, it's actually a yellow turnip & also falls into the root veggie category. it can be prepared much like butternut squash but is a lot easier to work with. pick one up in your local grocery store & join this rutabaga journey with me...
