Rutabagas are a wonderful root vegetable that can add flavor to any wintery dish. Mashed, roasted, or added to soup, rutabaga is one of the Full Belly farmer's favorite treats. Rutabaga originated as a cross between the cabbage and turnip. Though our CSA members often only see the root portion of this vegetable, the tops are also nutritious and tasty.
Rutabagas contain significant amounts of vitamin C- 100g contains about 45% of our daily recommended intake!
Full Belly farmers often prepare by peeling, chopping into 1" cubes, and adding to any other winter root vegetables for roasting in the oven at 350 degrees. Enjoy!
