I must say that I am very impressed with how this low carb fries turned out. The rutabaga itself is sweet that makes the flavor blends beautifully. The best part of this dish is that when you eat ‘fries’ this time you will not feel guilty as it’s so low in calorie and carbs!

1. The substitution for the spices and oil is limitless! Substitute olive oil with truffle oil or avocado oil for more rich flavors, or use Italian seasonings if desired.2.
