Glazed Rutabagas

Glazed Rutabagas

  1. 6 tbsp butter
  2. 4 lbs rutabagas, peeled and cut into  strips (1/4 by 2 inch)
  3. 2 tsp sea salt
  4. 2 tbsp walnut oil
  5. 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp chicken or veggie stock
  6. 1/2 cup toasted and chopped walnuts
  7. 1/4 tsp pepper

Melt 2 tbsp butter in a large pan over medium heat.  Add 1/2 the rutabaga and 1 tsp salt, cooking until lightly browned (5 minutes).  Add 1 tbsp walnut oil and 1/4 cup and simmer, covered, until rutabagas are tender (about 15 minutes).  Remove to a dish and repeat with remaining rutabaga.

Return all rutabagas to the pan, add the remaining 2 tbsp butter and remaining 2 tbsp stock.  Cook over medium/high heat, tossing until the liquid evaporates and the rutabagas are glazed.  Stir in the walnuts and pepper.  Garnish with either parsley or cilantro.  Serves 8.  Note that 2 tbsp chopped parsley can be added with the walnuts.

This is a great dish!!!! Rutabagas are so yummy any time of year!
