Ginger & Orange Rutabaga (Yellow Turnip or Swede)

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Bergy

Rutabagas are an under rated veggie - there are so many ways you can serve them - I love the touch of ginger with fresh orange juice used in this recipe. Not bad for calories either

Bergy, this takes the lowly turnip to a new high! I used a teaspoon of freshly grated ginger and the butter. I too, loved the orange flavour, perhaps it would be good with a little fresh orange zest?? A good one Bergy!
