Rutabaga Recipes

I love rutabaga recipes.  I think it's a much under-valued vegetable.  Often over cooked until it tastes awful.  However, with a little imagination you can make delicious sides with rutabaga.

Many people mix up turnips for rutabagas.  Turnips are much smaller and are white fleshed, while the latter is much yellower.

Typically, rutabaga is covered in wax for storage as shown above.

The turnip has a purple blush to it.  It is said that rutabaga was likely a cross between a cabbage and a turnip!

For 100g of rutabaga, there are only 38 calories.

305 mg potassium

41% vitamin C

5% magnesium

5% vitamin B6

4% calcium

I'll keep adding more rutabaga recipes to this page so visit again!
