Dietitians Note:
Rutabaga is probably one of those funny looking vegetables you’ve walked by in the grocery store countless times without buying because you weren’t quite sure what to do with it. Rutabaga is a root vegetable that can be eaten raw in salads or cooked into
soups or a stir-fry. This is a recipe I made while studying at UBC when I learned how to apply nutrition theory in the kitchen under the incredible leadership of dietitians, Joanne Rankin & Gerry Kasten. Enjoy!
