FYI, nutritiondata.com is a very handy place to check any time you have a question like this. Just google "nutritional values for xxxx" and their website pops up - as below for 1 cup of turnips and rutabaga.

For Turnips:

For Rutabaga:

You can see that rutabaga is twice as high as turnips in calories, carbs, and sugars.

I find rutabega to be sweeter and a nice sweet potato substitute (boil cubes for 45 minutes and then mash with cinnamon, stevia/splenda and a dash of olive oil). A lot of people have done rutabega fries with great success.

Turnips are more like a potato with the sharpness of a radish, to me anyway. I roast them as fries or cubes with olive oil and rosemary. I also have made hashbrowns with them, and recently made a turnip casserole that was delicious (recipe here: www.unlimitedlettuce.com (http://www.unlimitedlettuce.com)).

Thank you for the recipe, I'm hosting Easter dinner and this will fit in wonderfully! Just wondering, I'm not a fan of leeks, do you think I can use green onions instead? And, I love your blog, looks like we have the same tastes.

and the new sheet DOES NOT LIMIT RUTABAGA TO TWICE A WEEK. You can eat it every day if you like. 2 cups per serving pre cooked. Try rutabaga fries. I love those so much! I eat it several times a week

Definitely green onions will work. Use a lot -- it adds a ton of flavor.

I saw on a recent daily thread that there was a new sheet, but my clinic didn't hand one out. However, on the sheet I have rutabega is listed as select but swede is listed as occasional. Unfortunately, rutabega and swede are the same veggie.

Thanks! That is an awesome site.

Someone recently posted the NEW sheet dated 2/13 and Rutabaga is back on the Occasional list (swede is gone!). It's a little disconcerting/confusing when things move around like that. I have a similar confusion with peppers (red) raw vs. cooked and that they have moved back and forth a few times.

Anyway, I have done Rutabaga as occasional veggie... fries or cut into small cubes - both roasted on a cookie sheet and spiced with chili powder, cayanne, salt and sometimes with clove/cinnamon and then tossed in a drop of WF maple syrup. YUMMLY!
