Roasted Rutabaga

I’m not sure where the inspiration to roast rutabaga came from, but here you go…


  • rutabaga
  • olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • thyme (optional)
  • maple syrup (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. Peel and cut the rutabaga into cubes.
  3. Toss with other ingredients.
  4. Arrange in a single layer on an edged cookie sheet.
  5. Roast 30 minutes or to desired tenderness.
