What I’ve learned by researching on Foodgawker for the most gawked recipe photos of all time (at least in Foodgawker time) is that that people like carbs.  Comfort food.  I’m with ya.

Potatoes, chocolate chip cookies, mac n cheese – and anything that is golden in color.

I’ve found a way to make our comfort food a little lighter.

Let’s change the foodgawking world with some seasonal veggies! Especially if we make them look and taste like our carby friends….rutabaga is a great stand-in. Just for giggles I compared rutabaga to potato and found that this tasty substitute will give us a carb savings of 20.8 grams, calorie savings of 91.3 and an addition of another 1 gram of  fiber.  What’s not to love? Roasted garlic, crispy onion and sweet rutabaga.  Even if you don’t think you like them, you must try this.  Especially if you get them with your CSA and don’t know what to do with them.

This is the damn tastiest rutabaga I’ve ever had.
