Lamb Chops with Roasted Rutabaga
There are so many different kinds of food in this world to explore and try. I wanted to share with you a little bit of Icelandic Food. You’re probably wondering what kind of food or cuisine is offered out there. Well I came up with a fun recipe that I hope you enjoy. Iceland is known for its fresh organic foods. The seafood and Lamb are amazingly fresh and have tons of flavor. In this recipe I wanted to add a vegetable, but it is very hard for fruits and vegetables to grow in Iceland. So, I did a little research and found that potatoes, beets and anything that is a root grows well there. Rutabaga popped into mind. I also wanted to add the Skyr type of Icelandic yogurt into the mix to give my dish some creaminess. I hope you give this recipe a try and remember there are so many foods out there to explore and play with.
