Roasted Rutabaga

1 rutabaga (also known as a Swede) about 6 inches in diameter
2 - 3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. dried Italian Herb mix
2 tsp. Kosher salt
1 tsp. sugar



Heat oven to 400 degrees.


Peel rutabaga and cut into 1/2-inch cubes.


Place rutabaga cubes in a large mixing bowl and drizzle with olive oil.


Cover bowl with a plate and shake to coat rutabaga with oil.(You may need a bit more oil.)


Sprinkle rutabaga with remaining ingredients and shake again distribute.


Transfer rutabaga to a parchment-lined or non-stick baking sheet. (I use a Silpat* to prevent sticking.)


Roast in center of the oven until edges brown and rutabaga is tender - 30 to 40 minutes - stirring about halfway through to minimize sticking.
