Fancy Roasted Rutabaga


1-2 rutabaga

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

2 tbsp Dijon mustard Dijon mustard

2 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp fresh or dried thyme

1 tsp Sea Salt

1 tsp Garlic Powser

1 tsp Onion Powder

1 tsp Dried Oregano

1/2 tsp smoked Paprika

1/2 tsp chili pepper flakes



  • Preheat the oven to 400°F

  • Peel the rutabagas and cut them into roughly 2" chunks; place them in a large mixing bowl.

  • Add the rest of the ingredients to a separate bowl and mix vigorously with a whisk until well combined.

  • Pour your sauce over the rutabagas and toss with a spoon until all the pieces are evenly coated.

  • Spread the rutabaga in a single layer across a sheet pan, making sure there is plenty of room between the pieces of rutabaga to allow air to circulate freely.

  • Cover with aluminum foil and bake in the oven for 30 minutes, then remove the foil, lower the heat to 375°F and continue baking, stirring 2 or 3 times during the process, until the rutabaga is fork tender and starts to caramelize around the edges, about 25 minutes.

  • Once the rutabaga has reached the desired color and doneness, remove it from the oven and immediately hit it with a light sprinkle of salt. Let it cool for a few minutes and then serve, garnished with fresh herbs and a dribble of extra-virgin olive oil, if desired.
