These fries are a nice change from conventional french fries. The rutabaga has a subtle sweetness that when combined with salt bursts with flavor. The recipe will work well with any fries, though.
2 rutabaga, peeled and cut in long strips
4T neutral oil (I use grape seed oil)
1t sea salt
2t corn starch
Lightly steam the rutabaga strips in a pot by bringing 1 cup water to a a boil. Add the rutabaga and let it simmer for 3-5 minutes (until you can pierce it with a fork but before it is soft enough to break). Heat the oil in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat for at least a minute. Add the fries and fry them for 8-10 minutes, stirring frequently. Slowly add the cornstarch while stirring and let it fry another minute.

Is there a way you could bake them in the oven with olive oil in the oven instead of frying? Thanks for this!
for sure. i do that a lot. I would still blanch them in water if you can b/c they take a long time to get soft in the oven
