Baked Spiced Rutabaga Chips

Rutabaga chips

If you’re a savory snacker and love a good bag of Lay’s at 3pm when you’re dead at your desk, counting down the minutes until 5:00pm, then this post is right up your alley. 

Instead of getting greasy with fried potato chips, buy a rutabaga (ruta-what?!) and make these baked chips.

Rutabaga Chips

Rutabaga is a root vegetable that’s lower in carbs than a potato and has a similar flavor to a turnip. Apparently a cross between a cabbage and a turnip, this veggie is rich in Vitamin C and fiber. It has a much more robust flavor than a potato and when baked with chili powder, salt and pepper – it’s a fun option to beat those 3pm blues. They are pleasingly salty and bring a little kick with the chili powder.

I eat pretty much all of my snacks with hummus…. it just brings more life to your snack in a healthy, low-calorie way. Plus, it’s packed with protein and heart healthy fats! I actually dipped peanut M&Ms in hummus once… and it worked! 

What you see in these photos is what you get from spiralizing one rutabaga. To spiralize this veggie, simply peel it and load it onto the spiralizer, using Blade A. Be sure to really lock in the rutabaga using the handle’s teeth and push down on the spiralizer to engage the suction cups. If any of the rutabaga gets jammed into the spiralizer, just pick out the pieces and keep going

Once you pop these babies in the oven after seasoning all of the slices with salt, pepper and chili powder (be generous!), make sure you flip them halfway! After the flip, season with some more salt, pepper and chili powder to make every bite count.

Before you start work on Monday, do yourself a favor and make these chips at some point this weekend. Pack them in a ziplock with a mini container of hummus and your coworkers will be ruta-begging you for a taste. Ha! Rutabegging! I’ll be here all night, folks….

  1. Ok, this is dope. Seriously dope. I’m definitely going to try this coming weekend!

  2. You are hysterical! And yeah I totally need to try these chips. Football party snack food? I think so.

  3. What a fun snack idea!

  4. I’m going to try a combo of rutabaga and sweet potato chips (kinda like the Tarro chip brand makes). Eventually I’ll get brave enough to use turnips and taro. Wish me luck!!

    We tried this last night. They were delicious. We never even broke out the hummus, we just ate them plain. Apparently I was delusional to think we would hold onto some of them for later snacks – they were gobbled up. I do highly recommend to watch these carefully. I had to use three cookie sheets and the chips on one of them ended up burnt. Next time, I’m going to lower the oven temperature to 300 and I’ll watch them carefully. Thanks for the recipe. So good!
