Greek Style Rutabaga


  • 2 small-medium rutabagas
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F
  2. Peel the rutabagas and cut them into roughly 2″ chunks; place them in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients to a separate bowl and mix vigorously with a whisk until well combined.
  4. Pour that sauce over the rutabagas and toss with a spoon until all the pieces are evenly coated.
  5. Spread the rutabaga in a single layer on a baking sheet
  6. Bake in the oven for 50 minutes, flipping the pieces around 2-3 rimes
  7. Once the rutabaga is cooked through and easily stabbed with a fork remove it from the oven
  8. Add a light sprinkle of salt over the top and let it cool slightly, garnishing with fresh herbs and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, if desired.

Note: I dipped mine in a tahini paste and it was absolutely magical. Just take 2 Tbsp tahini and 4 Tbsp water/oil. Mix in a small dish adding salt and pepper as needed. I can also imagine it with a nice olive tapenade to garnish!
