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:
http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/...roducts/2700/2

For Rutabaga:
http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/...roducts/2611/2

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).

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.

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!
