Baked Garlic Herb Shoestring Rutabagas [Vegan]




Cooking Time




For the Baked Rutabagas:

  • 3 rutabagas
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast, to taste

For the Garlic Herb Oil:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 5-6 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Peel and cut the ends off of the rutabagas. Run the rutabagas through a spiralizer on the finest setting.
  3. Place the spiralized rutabagas on a parchment-lined baking sheet, drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Evenly coat the rutabagas with the olive oil and seasoning by gently mixing with your hands.
  4. Evenly spread the spiralized rutabagas out on the baking sheet and cook at 400ºF for 30-35 minutes. You will know that the rutabagas are done cooking once they become soft, darker in color, and slightly translucent.
  5. Make the garlic herb oil while the rutabagas are cooking. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat and add 5-6 cloves of minced garlic. Cook 1-2 minutes and remove from the heat. Stir in the fresh chopped parsley right before serving.
  6. Once the rutabagas are done cooking, drizzle with the garlic herb oil, sprinkle with a little nutritional yeast, and serve.
