What in the world is a rutabaga?
Well, rutabagas are the result of some promiscuous turnips crossing with wild cabbages in the 1600s, and while they contain the genes of both veggies, they’re considered a part of the cruciferous family of vegetables and pack similar health benefits.
What Does a Rutabaga Taste Like? The fact that rutabagas are a cross between turnips and cabbage is evident in the flavor. The taste is a bit milder than a turnip's when raw, and buttery and sweet-savory. They taste like Yukon Gold potatoes with a lot of attitude.
I am part Swedish, so I knew that they are also known as a Swedish Turnip.
They are a rich source of calcium, magnesium, potassium, and vitamins C and E. They are also a good source of folate and provide a bit of phosphorus and selenium. Low in calories at only 145 for a medium-sized one!
