LC SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Roasted Rutabagas and steamed kale. (To make rutabagas, toss peeled and quartered rutabagas with olive oil and some salt and pepper. Roast in a 400 degree oven till
tender (about 15 to 25 minutes depending on the size of the rutabagas).
If you don't like rutabaga, I found sweet potatoes work just as good roasted in the oven.
