Swede is such an underused vegetable. I think that could be because it looks pretty ugly in the shops, and people are worried about peeling and preparing it. Maybe? Tell me, if swede something you use a lot? Either way you should try it roasted! Delicious!!!

Anyway, Dorothy is my American interpreter 😉 If I am unsure of anything then I check with her. The international language of food isn’t always clear cut. I am pretty lucky as when I moved to Australia I had to adopt the words capsicum, zucchini and eggplant (I am sure there are plenty more!!!!) so my food language has evolved. Add to that my obsession love of the cookery channel and the plethora of US cook shows, I am pretty well versed in arugula, cilantro etc. But I still like to check things with Dorothy.

Swede isn’t something I have seen in an American cook show, so I had to get Dorothy to confirm it for me. Turns out swedes are called swedes all over the world, except in America. There they are called rutabaga. Which is the coolest name ever and I want to start a movement to introduce the name rutabaga to Australia! 😉

But wherever you are in the world and whatever you call this underused vegetable, this roasted swede dish is pretty special. We all know I love roasted veg!!!! If I can roast it, then I will!!! And I haven’t found a vegetable that isn’t delicious when roasted. In fact many vegetables taste better roasted! Take my roasted broccoli dish. Honestly it is amazing. And my roasted Brussels sprouts with fish sauce vinaigrette have been know to convert non-sprout eaters!!!!!

I served this roasted swede up with a steak and side salad, but they would be fabulous as part of a roast, or along side a grilled chicken dish.

    Hi Claire! Had to tell you I was so excited to find swedes at my local store today!!! Gary looked at me and asked “what is that?” and I told him it was a swede (confused him even more until I said it is a rutabaga!), I’m thinking this recipe with a nice ribeye steak, some creamed spinach and, of course, wine! My tum is growling just thinking about it!

    Hi Claire! You flatter me! I certainly don’t claim to know all, I just know how to dig around and find out what I want to know! What I do know is that these sound delicious! I love roasted vegetables, so much better than steamed!! So good with a nice juicy steak or roast chicken! And a glass of wine! 🙂
