Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes


  • 1 rutabaga/swede
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C).
  • You can either peel the rutabaga using a potato peeler or a paring knife. Once that is done, slice the rutabaga in half and then in ¼-inch disks. Then take each disk and slice it into fries as shown in step 2 below.
  • Scatter the rutabaga fries on a sheet pan, drizzle with olive oil, and season with paprika, salt, and pepper. Toss so that everything is well coated, and arrange in a single layer.
  • Roast in the oven for 30-40 minutes, or until they're golden brown and fluffy from the inside.
