We accept carrots and zucchini into our baked goods, but knotted, unglamorous root vegetables like rutabaga are often overlooked, despite their appealing nutritional benefits, inexpensive price point, and sweet, distinctive insides. Take a chance on these mottled root vegetables to refresh your morning pastry repertoire—you’ll be thrilled at how well rutabaga plays with zesty warming spices, earthy whole-grain flours, and sticky brown sugar.
Tip: Need to clean out your vegetable drawer? A dappled root vegetable medley featuring parsnips, celery root, beets, and/or sunchokes could also be added in concert with the rutabaga.
