2 Cup Rutabaga, peeled and julienned
1/2 Tbsp Chili powder
1/2 Tbsp Oregano
1 Tsp Lime juice
1/4 Tsp Grape seed oil
7 Oz Beef flank steak


step #1

Start off by preheating your oven 425°F and carefully chopping your rutabaga into fries. If you prefer thicker fries, cut them thicker. 

step #2

Next, mix the rutabaga with grape seed oil, chili powder, oregano, and a bit of lime juice. The oil will help the spices stick to your fries, adding even more delicious flavor. 

step #3

Place the fries evenly on an oiled baking sheet (give it a quick spray, or spread some on gently with a bit of paper towel) before setting it in the oven. Let the fries bake for approximately 30 minutes, making sure to flip halfway through to ensure everything gets cooked evenly. 

step #4

While the fries are cooking, heat up a non-stick pan with a bit of oil, and cook your steak to your desired doneness. Season with your favorite herbs and spices, and plate with your rutabaga fries once they're done.

step #5

Ready to serve!

Did you know?

Rutabaga (sometimes called yellow turnip) has a great amount of vitamin C content, which our body uses to boost the immune system, repair damaged cells, and help regulate digestive health. Plus, rutabaga helps you reach your dietary fiber needs – fiber helps your body prevent Type 2 diabetes, and has been shown to help prevent colon cancer. Plus, it’s a great food for taking in complex carbohydrates (the good kind, that is) that your body can gradually convert into energy. Not bad for a potato substitute!
