We’ve been meaning to make rutabaga fries since we first heard about them, and I had been craving a big juicy burger, extra lean of course 😉 So tonight was the night to make this MARVELOUS MEAL!

Lettuce Wrapped Beef Burger:

  • 1 pound of organic extra lean ground beef
  • 2 small green chili peppers
  • 1 cup of clover sprouts
  • 1/2 cup of onion
  • 1 cup celery
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1 tblsp parsley
  • 1 tsp horseradish
  • 3 tblsp soy sauce
  • salt & pepper

Mix all together in a bowl, and make 3-4 patties.  BBQ on grill until desired wellness/done-ness.

After cooked we placed the burger on a ice-burg lettuce bed, and put Walden Farm’s Mayonnaise, Trader Joe’s Mustard, sauteed mushrooms, & pickles on the beef patty.  YUMMMMYYYYY!  Turned out so perfect & amazing!  I would HIGHLY recommend trying this recipe! 😀

Rutabaga Fries:

  • Peel & cut 2 small rutabagas into french fry shape
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Paprika
  • Garlic
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 Beaten Egg

Mix rutabaga with all ingredients and let marinate.  Lay rutabaga in a single layer on a baking sheet and cook at 425* for 25 minutes.

NOTE:  For all of those who have never eaten rutabaga before, it is definitely a different kind of taste and flavor.  Both Mike and I were hoping it would taste more like potatoes (naturally 😉 hehe)…  It has a very bitter and peppery flavor to it, and a little more soggy texture than your typical french fry.  Rutabaga definitely isn’t one of our FAVORITE vegetables, but we would HIGHLY recommend you try it for yourself.  Everyone’s palate is different.
