Rutabaga Oven Fries
Though not really fried, these golden batons look and feel like French fries, and are great for dipping in ketchup or aïoli (garlic mayonnaise).
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 4
- 1 large rutabaga (“wax turnip”), thickly peeled
- 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
- Kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped thyme, rosemary, or parsley
- Freshly ground black pepper
Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Slice rutabaga into 2½″ × ½″ sticks (batons); soak in cold water for 30 minutes. Dry thoroughly with towels. Toss gently with oil and a light sprinkling of salt.
Spread fries into a single layer on a sheet pan and bake, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and tender, about 30 to 40 minutes.
Remove from oven and toss with thyme, salt, and fresh ground pepper.
