Rutabaga tends to be an under-appreciated vegetable, but if you don’t usually cook with it, it’s definitely worth trying with this recipe from Saveur for rutabaga with a sweet-and-sour sauce using Sriracha and Lehua Honey. It’s easy to make and will warm you right up on a chilly winter night (and would make a fun addition to a Thanksgiving spread!)
- 1 large rutabaga (~1 1/2 lbs) peeled and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
- 1 Tbsp canola oil
- 3 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 3 Tbsp organic Lehua honey
- 1 Tbsp sriracha sauce
- 1 tsp sea salt
- chopped fresh mint or cilantro to garnish (optional)
- Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add rutabaga and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. (Add a small amount of water occasionally, as needed, to slightly steam the vegetables and to keep it from sticking to the pan)
- Add butter, honey, sriracha, and salt; toss to coat evenly.
- Remove from heat and garnish with mint/cilantro (if desired). Serve hot.
