Ah! I love knowing that I’m starting my day with something SUPER healthy! So many nutrients from all the healthy ingredients, and a nice punch of protein from the eggs in there to get you through till lunchtime without feeling hungry.
Another thing that’s fun about this casserole is that I beat the egg whites to make them nice and fluffy and folded them in right before putting in the oven. This makes for a light, fluffy, and delicious texture! You’re gonna love this stuff!
FLUFFY RUTABAGA AND DILL CASSEROLE
- 2.5-3lbs of rutabaga, peeled and chopped
- 3 Tbsp. coconut oil
- 1 Tbsp. fresh dill, finely chopped
- 1/4 tsp. paprika
- 4 eggs, separated
- Sea salt, to taste
1.) Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and lightly spray a 1.5 qt. casserole dish with olive oil. Place the rutabaga in a sauce pan, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until the rutabaga is fork tender. Drain in a strainer.
2.) Place the rutabaga and coconut oil back in the pan, and use a masher to mash the rutabaga.
3.) Add the egg yolks, dill, and paprika. Stir to combine.
4.) Beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
5.) Fold the beaten egg whites into the rutabaga mixture.
6.) Lightly pile into the prepared 1.5 qt. casserole dish, and bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes, until lightly browned.
Allow to cool in the dish for 5 minutes, then use a knife to cut into slices. Season with sea salt and pepper and serve.
