  • 22 ounces rutabaga, peeled and diced (about 1 large rutabaga)
  • 6 ounces green cabbage, chopped (about half a head of green cabbage, hard parts removed)
  • 4 ounces leeks, cut into strips (white parts only of 1 leek, green stems removed)
  • 3 tablespoon avocado oil (or any cooking oil or butter)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper (or to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (optional, and to taste)
  • 8 ounces bacon, cut into pieces
  • basil for garnish (totally optional)


  • Preheat your oven to 425°F. Add rutabaga, cabbage, leeks, and bacon to the cast iron skillet.
  • Season with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Mix until well combined.
  • Roast in the oven for 25 minutes, then take the veggies out, and mix around before returning to oven for another 20-30 minutes, because you want all the vegetables to get a little crisp on them.
  • Finally, garnish with basil if you want, then eat!


Store in the fridge in an air tight container for up to 5 days.
