  • 2 smallish rutabagas (about 750g | 1.75lb total)
  • 1¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 12 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 12 tbsp lime juice
  • 12 tbsp fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 11 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 11 tsp garlic powder
  • 11 tsp onion powder
  • 11 tsp dried oregano
  • 1½ tsp smoked paprika
  • 1½ tsp chili pepper flakesPreheat the oven to 400°F
  • 1 Peel the rutabagas and cut them into roughly 2" chunks; place them in a large mixing bowl.
  • 1 Add the rest of the ingredients to a separate bowl and mix vigorously with a whisk until well combined.
  • 1 Pour that sauce over the rutabagas and toss with a spoon until all the pieces are evenly coated.
  • 1 Spread the rutabaga in a single layer across a broiler pan, making sure there is plenty of room between the pieces of rutabaga to allow air to circulate freely.
  • 1 Cover with aluminum foil and bake in the oven for 30 minutes, then remove the foil, lower the heat to 375°F and continue baking, stirring 2 or 3 times during the process, until the rutabaga is fork tender and starts to caramelize around the edges, about 25 minutes.
  • 1 Once the rutabaga has reached the desired color and doneness, remove it from the oven and immediately hit it with a light sprinkle of salt. Let it cool for a few minutes and then serve, garnished with fresh herbs and a dribble of extra-virgin olive oil, if desired.
