Honey & Sriracha Rutabaga Sautee

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!)

Ingredients:

  • 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)


Instructions:

  1. 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)
  2. Add butter, honey, sriracha, and salt; toss to coat evenly.
  3. Remove from heat and garnish with mint/cilantro (if desired). Serve hot.
