• Rutabaga – chop into cubes
  • Dinosaur Kale (or another kind of kale or “greens”) – cut into bite-size pieces
  • Leek – cut the white and light green parts into rings or half rings
  • Oil and Salt


  1. Heat up a little oil in a pan.
  2. Add the rutabaga.  Let it cook for a few minutes.
  3. Put in the kale and leek.
  4. Add a little salt for flavor.
  5. Add some water to create steam and cover with a lid.
  6. Check on the vegetables every now and then to make sure they aren’t burning.
  7. Cook until the rutabaga is soft and cuts easily with a knife.  Let them turn a little brown, if you like.

Many other vegetables would work as well.  Ask your student if he/she can remember any other “foods from the root cellar” or hardy winter vegetables to try making this recipe.
