Nonstick cooking spray
2 pounds rutabagas, peeled
cup canola oil or olive oil
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with
cooking spray. Slice the rutabagas lengthwise to french
fry shapes. Put the rutabaga strips in a large bowl and
drizzle with oil. Toss well so that each piece of rutabaga is
coated with oil. Sprinkle fries with salt and pepper. Place
rutabaga strips in a single layer on the prepared baking
Bake 20 minutes or until golden brown. (Watch carefully
because rutabagas have more sugar in them than
baking potatoes and tend to caramelize faster. If the fries
are getting too dark too fast, reduce the oven to 400 degrees).
Season to taste.
Yield: 4 servings
