Rutabaga Fries

Sara Jones, Tucson CSA

Like other root vegetables, rutabaga is great baked. Try making
fries with your share and you won’t be disappointed. These fries
will be more like sweet potato fries, in that they will never get
perfectly crisp like a potato. To help them crisp better, switch
them to broil right when they are almost tender. That will give
them more color and a better texture than just baking.

1 share rutabaga, peeled and cut into French fry strips
2 teaspoons oil
Salt and pepper

Curry powder, paprika, cayenne or any other spice mix you like
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Toss rutabaga with oil, salt and
pepper and spices. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet
and place in over. Cook about 10-20 minutes (depending on the
thickness of your slice). Once almost tender, switch oven to
broil and cook until nicely browned. Serve immediately.
