2 tbsp olive oil

2 rutabaga,  peeled and small cubed

1 small onion, diced

1 garlic clove, minced

2 scallions, sliced white and greens

1/2 jalapeño, chopped

salt & pepper to taste

1 tsp garlic powder

2 tbsp shredded Colby Jack cheese, plant-based cheese, Violife recommended

cilantro, 2 tbsp chopped


  1. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a cast-iron skillet. Add cubed rutabaga. Cook for 5 – 7 minutes stirring occasionally.
  2. Add onion, cook, while continuing to stir until lightly browned. Add garlic, scallions, and jalapeños. Season with salt & pepper and garlic powder.
  3. Cook for an additional 5 minutes. (If making eggs – this is the time to cook them in a separate pan.) Stir in cheese and half of the chopped cilantro. Ready when the cheese has melted slightly.
