Tired of the standard greasy fries? Try this oven baked healthier alternative for a fun change. Serves 4 - 6 as a side dish.
- 1 large or 2 medium sized organic rutabagas (about 1 ½ - 2 lbs. total)
- 3 sprigs fresh organic rosemary
- 3 organic garlic cloves
- 1 tablespoon LHF California extra virgin olive oil
- Diamond Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Bring salted water to boil in a large pot fitted with a steamer.
Peel the rutabaga, then cut into long, ½ inch strips.
Finely mince the rosemary leaves.
Finely mince or grate the garlic cloves.
Preheat oven to 400ºF.
Steam the cut rutabaga strips until tender, about 10 – 12 minutes.
Remove from the heat and allow to cool until comfortable enough to handle.
Dry the rutabaga strips with a towel, then toss with the rosemary, garlic and olive oil.
Using a baking sheet or sheet pan, arrange the fries in a single layer. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes, turning half way through.
Raise the heat to the broiler setting. Broil the fries to crisp and brown them, about 1 – 2 minutes, watching carefully. Salt and pepper to taste, and serve right away.
