The oldskool veggie Rutabaga (swede) is one of those things that I keep staring at in the store. What the f… can I do with this? Well, you can make ‘pasta’ with it! Combine it with a bitter Radicchio salad and sweet grilled pear – lovely.
What do you need for two portions?
- 1/2 Rutabaga
- handful of mixed salad
- 2 pieces of radicchio
- 1 pear (Doyenne du Comice)
- 1 small hot pepper
- 125 ml sour cream
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 big sweet onion
- handful walnuts
- peeler & grill pan
- olive oil, coconut oil, lemon juice, salt & pepper
Cut the Rutabaga into thick slices. Use the peeler to get rid of the skin. Cut the slices in half and use the peeler to cut ‘tagliatelle’ from the inside out.
Cut the garlic, onion and hot pepper into small pieces. Heat up some olive oil in a pan, add the garlic, onion, Rutabaga & hot pepper and stir for a few minutes. Ad the sour cream, a little bit of water (50ml) en let it simmer for about 10 minutes.
Use these 10 minutes to cut the pear into thin slices and grill them in a grill pan. Cut the Radicchio in thin slices (don’t use the heart, it’s too bitter) and toss these with the mixed salad, lemon juice, some salt & pepper.
On each plate – a little Rutabaga, Radicchio salad, grilled pear. Add walnuts to garnish.
That’s it! Enjoy.
