I felt these were too soggy and meh to make again. That and the resulting gastrointestinal distress both my sweetie and I suffered afterward. Maybe we just don't digest this too well? I recommend popping a Beano before eating rutabagas, if in doubt. Just FYI.

They didn't turn out as "crispy" as I thought. Although, they tasted pretty great and had little difference from oven potatoes.

I also added minced garlic. I like the idea of combining with sweet potatoes, in which case I might add cinnamon.

These are amazing, will definitely make again! I also used potatoes, sweet potatoes, and parsnips to make a beautiful mix--highly recommended!
