(to be honest, some of ours were griddled and not roasted)
Serving Size: 1
  • 1/3 rutabaga
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil to coat the baking sheet
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning, cajun seasoning, or other mixed seasoning
  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. In a bowl, mix all the ingredients except 1 tbsp of coconut oil.
  2. Use a food processor to slice the rutabaga into small chip slices.
  3. On a very large sheet pan, coat it with that remaining 1 tbsp coconut oil and spread the seasoned strips out in a single layer.
  4. Put into the oven to bake for about 30 minutes, stiring/turning every 10 minutes.
  5. After when done, add the mixed ingredients on top of the chips, and stir the chips.
