Roasted Rutabaga with Brown Butter

Roasted Rutabaga in Brown Butter

Serves 4 as a side dish

  • 1 large rutabaga, about 1 1/2 pounds

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • Flaky salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • Juice of 1/2 lemon 

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley

Heat the oven to 450°F. Peel the rutabaga with a vegetable peeler and cut into 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch cubes.

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat and cook for about 5 minutes, until the butter foams then browns into a nutty, toasty-smelling liquid.

Toss the rutabaga with the browned butter and season with salt and pepper. Transfer the rutabaga to a large baking sheet and spread into a single layer. Roast for 25 to 40 minutes or until browned and tender. Remove from the baking sheet and toss with lemon juice and parsley.
