INGREDIENTS
½ medium head of garlic
1 large rutabaga, peeled and cut into ¼-inch pieces
2 shallots or ½ cup regular onion, chopped
1 tablespoon vegetable or olive oil

Salt
Ground black pepper

PREPARATION

  • Heat oven to 375 °F.

  • Raise heat to 425 °F and continue roasting until tender and evenly browned, 15–20 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with pepper to taste, and serve hot or at room temperature.

Serves 2. Prep time, 10 minutes; cook time, 50 minutes.
