This simple hash brown, shown above with braised beef and green beans, is very close to real potatoes, both in texture and flavor. AND it can be ready in about 15 minutes. This recipe is not suitable until the starchy vegetable rung of the OWL ladder. For those who question the “starchy veggie” status of this vegetable, rutabaga is listed as a starchy vegetable on pg. 154 of A New Atkins for a New You.
