Aren’t French Fries the best? Almost two years ago, I posted this list of Low Carb French Fry ideas. And I tried a lot of the ideas on this list. I have made carrot fries and parsnip fries quite a bit.
My brother told me that he and my sister-in-law have been enjoying mashed rutabagas a lot lately. ( don’t know my beautiful sister-in-law? Check out her blog)
And I decided that I needed to try rutabaga fries. Plus, I bought this fancy new crinkle cutter, so my chips would seem more like the real thing.
Don’t know much about Rutabagas? Neither did I! ( read this article) I think they taste like a cross between a Potato and a Sweet Potato. PLUS a Rutabaga is 1/2 the calories of either a white potato OR a sweet potato, so if you’re trying to cut calories get more bang for your buck, you can’t go wrong!
I am not going to write out a big long recipe for these fries, because it’s pretty easy.
Cut your fries into fry shape ( they don’t need to be crinkle fries), drizzle the fries with olive oil and salt the fries generously. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Toss with a spatula every few minutes.
I dunked these babies in ketchup for lunch and enjoyed them. You can top them with whatever you like. I promise that you will not miss regular potato fries!
