Root Vegetable Fries
Roasted potatoes are good and all, but a roasted root vegetable
medley is just as easy to make and a little bit fancy too.
Substitute any root vegetable, including starchy potatoes, turnip,
parsnip, celery root, or rutabaga. While the veggies are roasting,
toss a garlic bulb or two into the pan at about the 30-minute
mark-the result: easy, creamy garlic! Yum.
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Cut the vegetables into 1⁄2"-wide
spears and toss in a roasting pan with olive oil and herbs to coat.
Keep the peels on; that's where the vitamins are.
2. Roast for approximately 40 minutes, turning regularly until all
sides have turned a golden brown and the fries are cooked straight
